Anyway- to the deal:
Latest Nokia N900, the phone that is about to change the way people look at mobile computing. Available at mobilephonesdirect on a range of tariffs. Both on Vodafone and T-Mobile currently to pre-order, expected delivery is mid November. My favourite deal on the page is the Vodafone £20 tariff with internet, which works out at $24.47 per month, although you do have to pay $47.99 up front for that one. I think I will be going for this deal over the next week or so unless something better comes up in the meantime.

Forgot to say:- Tech specs, features etc are available at the website, and are also all over the net if you want to read a review or anything. I have also looked up the company and have seen many favourable reviews.

At the bottom of the deal post is an Edit button. Click that and you can go back and add/remove whatever you want from the deal description :thumbsup:

I can't decide between this and the HTC HD2... I think I'm going to go with whichever becomes available first, the release dates for both keep slipping.

I was thinking it must be to do with the VAT thing. I haven't done the sums, but I think when it is worked out it would be £25 when the VAT goes back up to normal later in the year, so by signing up now you save the difference every month

VAT - I think you'll always pay the prevailing vat rate at the time you're charged each month, so when it goes up, even if signing up now, you'll then pay the higher rate.

Exactly the same!

Nokia - Very good signal but boring software/OS.

No other phone can beat iphone or HTC android based phones..

HTC HD2 is best.. but what i am worried is about the battery life of both mobile phones as they dont have very impressive battery life ..i have an xperia X1 which has a 1500 battery but its useless..

so lets see what they do?
#11
My Samsung F700 has decent battery, but has 'early adopter' problems (it came out roughly the same time as the first I-phone).
I keep looking for something better, but I keep finding shortcommings that keep me from changing.
#12
For anyone who doesn't already know, you SHOULD be able to install & dual boot android on this. It's been done aleady on the n810, which also runs maemo. There are videos all over youtube etc. Don't know if that might sway some people or not.
Also, I have still not found another place offering this device on contract yet

I think they both have advantages. N900 isn't using WinMo, has a physical keyboard, FM transmitter, flash plugin.... HD2 has a capacitive screen, better processor and more apps around (even if they're not as easy to find as iTunes makes it for a certain other phone).

But for me, the best bit about both is the resolution of the screen (almost double that of the iPhone), meaning many web pages will display nicely without having to keep scrolling all the time.
#14
It's more than double the resolution of the iPhone, 480x320 vs 800x480.

The apps available for it will basically be the same as Linux Qt apps. So plenty of them. And even more once the old ones have been converted from GTK to Qt.

I had the old N810 and I could do far more with it than I could with my N95.
#15
Vodafone is still not sure when they'll have them and my upgrade is due from today...

We dont have much options on vodafone at the moment.
#16
What's the best site to compare new contract deals?

My contract ends beginning Jan so looking for a new deal.
#17
I've been waiting to see if Carphone Warehouse would have this for o2, but I read somewhere earlier that o2 have said they have "no plans to release" this phone. I'm assuming it's because it's similar to the iphone - like the N97.

Looks like I'll be cancelling my contract with CPW and checking out mobile phones direct. Are they on Quidco?
#18
Do you think this phone will be available on upgrade, I'm currently paying £35 monthly and was given an n95 the last time round
#19
Any ideas on the cheapest way to buy this sim free?
#20
I'm currently with Vodafone but no longer under contract and I'm considering moving on to either t-mobile or o2... Vodafone has 500mb limited internet deal which would be the max available on the N900, while on the iphone they allowing 1gb (just not fair for us users but apple manage to push Vodafone)....

I was reading yesterday at the Vodafone forum that some guy run over 80mb on the N900 in just about 3 days and was concerned Vodafone was gone stung him big time once he reached the 500mb limit as the Vodafone usage servers are about 24 hours behind.

T-mobile in the other hand, at least for me, they don't seem to have that British RIP OFF attitude like Vodafone business module has, and seem to offer a much better deal, I think it works out less then £1 a day for unlimited use... and weekly/monthly is even much cheaper...

O2 in the other hand also seem to be already moving ahead with LTE testing and I suspect O2 is gone be one of the first players out there to provide such a fast service sooner or later in the UK, plus O2 seems to also currently offer some of the biggest mobile broadband bundles available out there, which I find promising. Not too sure about O2 costs if users go over the allowances limits... at the moment T-mobile is my preferred choice for peace of mind.
