The Nokia N900 is the most amazing Nokia device out there, it is unique, first of its kind, and the most powerful phone running the most powerful OS in the mobile market: Maemo5. Maemo5 isn’t anything like Symbian, Symbian is a smartphone OS, while Maemo OS is something in the middle between smartphone and a desktop OS.
Lately, the iPhone has gotten a lot of attention because of all the impressive apps that are available for this device. And although I still think that so many apps are really useless, I do think that Nokia needs a solid base of free applications for Maemo, the N900, and upcoming Maemo devices. Afterall, apps are lots of fun. Luckily for us Nokia fans, Maemo is an open source OS, and the software developing possibilities are endless.
Currently there are 25 free apps for the Nokia N900, but when Maemo releases, there will be a lot more. Also, Ovi Store is coming to the N900, hopefully with more functionality and apps. In the meanwhile, here are some cool free apps for the N900:
5. Skype is really useful on a mobile device, for years now, Nokia users had to use different apps to get Skype on their devices. Now, Skype is native for the N900. Here is the link: Skype (coming soon)
4. Facebook for Nokia N900. With the new touchscreen phones from Nokia, Facebook was finally introduced to Nokia devices. It is a nice app on the N97, but again, the other app in you know what phone is better. With the N900 everything changes, the N900 is far more capable than the any other phone. Here is Facebook for the Nokia N900: Facebook
3. OMweather: A complete, free, cool weather app for the Nokia N900. OMWeather is a really cool widget for the N900, is shows 10-day forecast right on the homescreen of the Nokia N900. Pretty impressive: Omweather
2. Games for Nokia N900: Bounce Evolution. If you didn’t know, N-Gage is closing definitively September next year. I have to say that I actually like the fact it will be closing, the N-Gage games on my N97 are absolutely unplayable. Horrible graphics, not to mention that a 10us game is way too expensive.
Is much better if Nokia distributes their games through the Ovi Store. Hopefully, nice graphics and maximum price of 5us. Here is a game that looks really nice, it is for the N900. It has really amazing graphs, hope more games like this come: Bounce Evolution
1. Fring. One of my favorite apps, you open Fring and you are suddenly connected with the whole world. Twitter, Facebook, Skype (and almost any other VOIP), and multiple chat systems like MSN, GTalk, AIM and more. Fring is really impressive, here is the link: Fring
