The N900’s front is completely devoid of any hardware buttons but its sides do have a bunch of them. I generally had no issues with their placement but I did have one with the lock/unlock button that is strangely placed at the phone’s bottom (or in landscape mode- the right side). I know it isn’t much to complain about but it just felt awkward.

It also supports 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS.
Design & Usability
The Nokia N900 a heavy and bulky device; it puts even the Nokia N97 to shame. Its bulk combined with its black body gives the impression of a serious, serious phone and not one that will draw attention with flashy colors or cute design. It’s also a solid device, built like the proverbial brick. There is little pointless movement in the phone’s body and the QWERTY keyboard slides out smoothly without any fuss.
The keyboard itself is well designed with decently sized buttons and a rubberized finish. My only issue with it is its size. In this day and age when we have phones like the Motorola Milestone, the LG GW620 and the Samsung CorbyPRO with four-even five- row keyboards, the N900’s three row keyboard feels small. Also, there is no dedicated D-pad but fortunately there are dedicated direction keys within the keyboard.
Browsing, Multimedia etc.
Browsing is supposed to be one of the Nokia N900’s strong points and I’m pleased to say that its definitely a great device to browse the Web on. The N900’s default browser was built with inputs by Mozilla and it works very well. The browsers rendering capabilities are superb and almost every site I checked out on it looked like it should. Plus, it’s one of the very few mobile browsers out there that supports Flash playback. The browser also lets you bookmark sites, open sites in new tabs and generally do everything that you expect from a modern day mobile browser.
