Nokia N900 (unlocked)
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Dec 11, 2009

THE GOOD: The Nokia N900 offers a powerful mobile Web browser, plenty of storage, a 5-megapixel camera, and an ultrasharp display. Its also fast, multitasks well, and has excellent call quality. Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, and GPS are all onboard. THE BAD: The user interface isnt very intuitive. Ovi Store for the N900 isnt live yet, limiting the number of available apps, and it doesnt sync with Exchanger Server 2003. The phone is a bit bulky and not all apps work in portrait mode. THE BOTTOM LINE: 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.

PROS: (1) 5MP camera with dual LED flash, Carl Zeiss lens, lens protector (2) slide out QWERTY keyboard (3) open source Linux-based operating system (called Maemo) (4) 3.5mm headphone jack (5) WiFi ...

Available as Prepaid?
4 Star Review   By member MaryPoppins99 - Jan 29, 2010   

Strengths: -Good web browsing and internet

Weakness: -Dropped calls

This phone is good for web browsing and data, it has really cool features too. But I was wondering if it is available on a prepaid plan... preferably on Straight Talk? If so, I could save over $500 a year on average by switching from my old monthly contract. Plus it's on the Verizon network so I get amazing coverage. Any feedback please?
