The big and chubby device is anything but mass-market but that's perhaps Nokia's way of reiterating the fact that it's no run-of-the-mill handset either.

While it has yet to reach its full potential, the Nokia N900 is a powerful mobile device with excellent browsing capabilities and vast customization options. However, its unintuitive interface and other limitations make this a smartphone for tech enthusiasts and early adopters only.

As a second, dedicated browsing device or a geeky weekend hobby, though...the N900 is a very compelling device indeed, as long as you remember one simple rule: it's a computer with a phone, not a phone that can compute.

The Nokia N900 is much better than the N97 is, I can vouch for that. However, I think that its form factor alone will be a deterrent for many potential users.

This is a great phone/mobile computer if you're into this kind of thing. If you wanted a Nokia Internet Tablet but were put off because of their size and the fact you need a mobile as well, this is the answer you've been looking for.

As a polished consumer phone it’s wide of the mark, but approach it carefully with your geek hat on and you’ll be in seventh heaven.

Nokia's latest flagship device packs in plenty of power and a first-rate browser, but its design and app selection leave something to be desired.

A perfect gift for the Linux lover in your life, the Nokia N900 is powerful and utterly hacker-friendly. But more casual users should pass it by.
