Multi-touch functionality

I know N900 will never support real multi-touch functionality because of resistive screen. But I would like to add some ideas how to implement it with almost same comfort by one touch at the time.


Multi-touch functionality, like zoom and turn, is the only thing where the iPhone is still better than N900. Why not mimic these actions where it is possible and make N900 more attractive for iPhone users? Let say that one finger touches the screen always before the other. You can perform same actions if the first touch position is fixed. It does not make any difference if hold your finger on this position or you rise it. So you can raise it before making the other touch. The only trick is how to recognize the first touch.

Dialing to special numbers

In my country there are  some numbers to which we dial, for example:  (HONDURAS)

#123# (send) and the service provider send a special message (not sms, just like a pop-up windows) with your prepaid balance.

Also if we want to give money from our balance to another user balance we dial


then a message appear confirming our request, we send 1 for yes as text message or 0 for no or just cancel.



Java Support

Almost every new phone support java, how come is it we can't handle java in our N900



SMS capability with Skype Conversations

The Skype integration for N900 is heavenly, works out-of-the-box. Skypeout quality and latency is superb even over 3G connection.


One thing I found missing is the capability to SMS with this integration. The PC client can do it, I believe that this functionality can be integrated as well.
