This is why Nokia will launch new touch system after Nokia has just launched S60 V5 system for only one year. Now let’s have a close look at the new Nokia N900: What are the new Nokia N900 main features compare with the iPhone 3G S.
iPhone 3GS: Dimensions (115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm), large (3.5 inch diagonal), weight (135g), high-resolution (480×320 screen), multi-touch display.
Nokia N900: Dimensions (110.9 × 59.8 × 18 mm), weight (181g), full qwerty sliding keyboard ,WVGA (800×480) touch display, not support multi-touch display.
Conclusion: Tie. Each phone has its own unique design essence and it is more of a personal preference which one you would like. However, the N900 is the largest size and the heaviest phone.
iPhone 3GS: There are two models with 32GB and 16GB capacity of internal memory. No card slot. RAM capacity is 256 MB.
Nokia N900: It has an internal memory of 32GB and is expandable with a 16GB micro SD card to make it a total of 48GB. The RAM and ROM capacity respectively is 256 MB and 768MB.
Conclusion: The iPhone has enough memory to store all your favourite music and videos but N900 even exceeds that limit with its whopping total of 48GB.
iPhone 3GS: No comparison is complete without a mention of Apple’s App Store. iPhone is the easiest platform to develop application for. This is why there are thousands of developers developing millions of applications for the iPhone.
Nokia N900: The N900 comes with preloaded Ovi store to easily pick up any apps. You can also pick up any programmes from wherever you like online unlike iPhone which lets you choose applications only from Apple’s own application Store. And what I do know is that the Maemo community is very active.
Conclusion: Though the Apple is not open like Nokia but still the amount of applications that are available for iPhone makes it a winner in this category.
iPhone 3GS: It has a 3.15 MP camera with autofocus, touchfocus and geotagging facility. It can capture videos at VGA resolution 30 fps, although there is no flash. It has build-in multimedia player and supports: H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48 kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats. There is no doubt that iPhone is wonderful music mobile phone.
Nokia N900: It features a 5 MP camera labeled with Carl Zeiss lens. It also packs dual LEDs flash, but don’t expect miracles when taking photos in dark restaurants and bars. By default, the N900 takes 3.5mp photos. And its video capture is done in 848×480 pixels (3.4Mbps, 22.3fps, AAC mono 48 kHz). The Nokia N900 is capable of playing DVD-resolution videos.

Conclusion: The Nokia N900’s camera beats all others with its feature as well as image quality. But as for media player, Nokia N900 and iPhone 3GS are both good!
iPhone 3GS : The iPhone is a blockbuster phone that has won many hearts. After some of refinements the iPhone 3GS model seems to remove all the flaws that it had in the previous models. Now it stands as an irresistible champion.
Nokia N900: The Nokia N900 is currently the best smartphone that Nokia has ever produced and I will call it a smartphone even if the company brands it as an ‘Internet tablet with phone functions’. As a voice device, the Nokia N900 does very well and as a communication tool, it is very good too. With Maemo, Nokia’s smartphone future seems a lot brighter than it is with Symbian OS, but despite the obvious potential, the number (and quality) of applications is still uncertain right now.
Conclusion: At the end of the day all of the third phones are tough competitors and it is hard to decide which one is the best. None of the phones can be neglected for their shortcomings because they have some features that outdoes others in some respects. But, the N900 faces stiff competition from the iPhone 3GS just to name the clear ones. It might have a features advantage, which is great, but I wonder if technical coolness will convert into actual sales. My personal take is that the Nokia N900 will still be the most desired phone and Apple iPhone fast becoming second in line. But it needs sexier design, there is no way around it. At last, Nokia will have a great sales.
