    YES. I hope they haven't forgotten the N900, the greatest phone ever. I switched to an Android with better specs and still wtf at the crappy sluggish multitasking, the poor handling of audio volumes and outputs, hoho you need to hack your friggin phone to do ANYTHING ADVANCED, and many other small things.

    I hate Android, I use because of the apps and the faster browser.

    the only problem I had with my N900 was that the USB connector came off after every few months. Never had that on another phone. Aside from that: yes, the N900 was awesome.

    Also you forgot that you need root rights to backup your own data. How stupid does a developer has to be to pull something like that off? I didn't knew that the IQ scala can go into negativity...
