Cheers for the links there, it'd been ages since i looked actually and never had an expansion card and no money to get one so left it. I'm gonna do some more research and see how it handles stuff like my music and videos etc since I want to go forward not back. Also phonecalls. Any idea if any of this actually works. When i was looking at old build of the thing ages ago nothing was really supported.

Android builds seem to be pretty good for non-Android phones. Like I said in my post, my HTC HD2 is the old WinMo 6.5... but I'm running a build of Android 2.3 on it (via SD card - on boot you start WinMo6.5 and then an .exe is run to boot you into Android), it's probably a little different on your N900, sounds like it can dual boot properly.
Everything works perfectly for me though... phone, data, wifi, videos, music, apps. I had a couple of crashes in the 8 months or so I've been using it, but I think it was partly my fault due to using an app that apparently isn't fully supported, either way there are apps to backup all your shit including text messages etc. so I never lost anything when this happened.

EDIT: Also remember Android is linux based, like Maemo... you would think the N900 is better suited to Android than my HD2.

Some apps you download from the market might not actually work, and also some of the keys might be replaced, check the wiki link, it says which keys are assigned for that and that function.It's really nothing, it's just an installer, it does most of the stuff by itself.

I think you need a class 6 or class 10 card for dual booting. Just check that before getting one.

+1 on that one, thanks Evo.Will give you faster bootup and faster app loading aswell, you can get it working with a Class 4 or lower but it will be slow.Thanks again Evo for reminding.

and what do you use to call someone or text?


Simple: I don't.

I only call people if I'm at home, if I'm not at home then I'm probably too busy to call someone anyway. As for texting, I find it kinda pointless.


I am incredibly irritated by texting. I get angry when people are just sitting there clickclickclickclickclickclickclick. JUST CALL THE DAMN PERSON IF YOU HAVE THAT MUCH TO SAY. WHYYYY must people hold CONVERSATIONS over text messages? And people are all like, "Oh, you just have to learn to use short-hand"..... No, thanks, I'll type like a fucking educated person, actually.

How are the Xperia Android phones? I wanted the PLAY, but it's expensive.

And is anyone capable of giving me one good reason to buy an iPhone BESIDES Siri?

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

Siri's just an outdated search engine with some fairly clever voice recognition sellotaped to the side. Plus you have to be connected to the internet to get any use out of it.

Aren't software updates on phones usually free? I mean, game systems have free software upgrades....

Most of the time...

Dunno about phones, but since you gotta pay to use them...

(I meant pay extra, like on iPhones)
