Farewell Nokia N900

23rd of June 2011, was my last day with N900.

I was using N900 for almost 14 months. During that period, this community played a major part in keeping my faith with maemo. Maemo was one of the exciting OSes that I ever used. Unfortunately, Nokia didn't share the same sentiment when they decided to stop the support for maemo and N900.

So, I decided it's time for me to ditch Nokia for good. But looking for a replacement is not an easy task. I can say that N900 has set a certain standard on how the mobile OS should looks like, especially when it comes to multi tasking. Not to mention the browser's capability, despite lack of support from Adobe on flash player. It's easily the best mobile browser I ever used.

Between iOS and Android, it's really a tough choice. With iOS, you'll be assured of support from Apple. With Android, you'll be assured of support from Google if you are using their official devices. If you buy other devices, it's up to the manufacturers to provide the update for Android.

So the search continue for a few months. But Samsung made it easy for me when they released the Galaxy S II. And on 23rd June 2011, I welcomed Galaxy S II into my life.

It's a decision that I'll never regret.

Nokia N900 - between internet tablet and smartphone

I've been using my Nokia E71 for around 2 years before I decided to do a tech refresh. But it's not easy to find a replacement for a device that can be considered as "complete", in terms of functionalities. So, I came out with my own "must have" requirements. I will not consider the device that cannot meet these "must have" requirements:
1. Touchscreen - since I browse a lot using my E71, it's time to get a bigger and better screen.
2. Keyboard - I am a fan of the physical keyboard. So, it must have a physical QWERTY keyboard.
3. Powerful - since my E71 can do almost everything, from blogging and tweeting to downloading torrent files (yes, I downloaded torrent files via my E71), so the new device should be able to match the capabilities of my E71. And capable of real multitasking. By the way, this criterion is subjective, depends on how you define "powerful".

After some intensive reading over the net, I shortlisted 3 devices:
1. Nokia N900
2. iPhone 3GS
3. Nokia N97 mini

Later I will list the advantages and disadvantages of each device.

Blogging from Pixelpipe

Isn't cool if you can blog from anywhere, anyhow and anytime? Previously, i've been blogging by sending email to this blog from my trusted Nokia E71. And it works like a charm. And very convenience as I don't need to install any application on my E71. Plus you can attach photos and send it to your blog.

I just discovered a new alternative way to blog, which is using Pixelpipe. Oh by the way, this post is sent via Pixelpipe. I've been actively using Pixelpipe to update my status on Facebook and Twitter from Nokia Contact. Cool huh? Now I just add Pixelpipe in my GoogleTalk contact list, so that I can update my status from my PC anytime I want. Oh I love technology!

Till then....
