Still, the Nokia N9 and its MeeGo Harmattan software platform remain unmatched in various aspects of user interface and user experience. Even though MeeGo Harmattan has essentially remained stagnant and frozen in time for 2 whole years, it still represents a benchmark in some ways for what a smartphone user interface should be.

Virtually every N9 owner I've ever talked to loves the N9 unconditionally. It could have been the Eve of Nokia's resurrection. Instead, it became the symbol of its demise.

So, I'm madly in love with my Nokia N900. I'm saving my money for a Jolla Mobile, but it may be many months or ever a year before it's available for (easy) purchase in the US.

Should I get an N9?

The people on the maemo.org forums seem to suggest that even the N9 can't compare to the N900. And I guess I don't really have a reason no replace the N900. I've just got the mobile phone ITCH. ;)

I loved my N900 and used it until the screen got broken.

Anyway, though it had a lot of potential and was a very interesting design, I always thought it was a "Beta product" instead of a finished and polished product. I think N9 has a better UX and I hope the Jolla phones will continue such trend.

I have both an N9 and an N900 (and an HTC One). My preference overall is definitely the N900. I'm watching this project, to potentially breath more life into the old phone: http://neo900.org/ they are looking to bring a replacement (and open hardware) mainboard to the N900.

I am REALLY looking forward to a rejuvenated N900. I loved mine, I have a replacement screen for it, but can't seem to get the screws out... Gonna have to dremel it..
