eCoach is a application that is monitoring your speed, distance and hard rate in real time. More over, you can follow your way on a map and show your workout or route to anybody you like. Of course it’s using the built in GPS to locate you and to track every step you take. It works pretty much like Sports Tracker for S60 devices. In my opinion eCoach is a must have application. In order to download it to your Nokia N900 jump over to your application manager.

hen Nokia first announced the Nokia N900 it came out of the blue. The Maemo 5 based N900 is a milestone and a new start for Nokia. However,every change is combined with downsides. Read on, to see all up- and downsides and to see how it works in the real world:
The N900 is indeed well built and feels in terms of its built quality stable in the hand. The front has a metal frame that gives the N900 a nice touch. Overall is the rest of the front out of plexiglas that looks and feeld nice. Unfortunately the Plexiglas attracts fingerprints easily. The back is produced out of matt plastic. This dosn’t feel cheap but also not as fine as a metal back. Also is the battery cover really solid and hard to get open. There is no wobble or clicking noise at all. Obviously the N900 has a slider mechanism that reveals the full qwerty-keyboard. It opens and closes nicely and whit a nice click noise. Sliding it up or down with either one or two hands is easy. Weather the slider is open or closed it’s absolutely stable and doesn’t wobble.
No doubt, the N900 is a piece of a phone.It meassures 110.9 x 59.8 x 18mm and weights 181grams. Thus, it’s really wide and thick.

The first announcement by Nokia at Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona is the introduction of MeeGo. In a significant development in the convergence of communications and computing, Intel Corporation and Nokia are merging their popular Moblin and Maemo software platforms.

Still there’s no new firmware update for the Nokia N900 available. However, a few selected contributors got the chance to test the upcoming firmware in advance. Unfortunately, this isn’t the big update all N900 user have been waited for. Portrait mode hasn’t been added in neither the internet browser nor in the entire menu. Anyway, PR1.1 should be faster and snappier and fix a bunch of bugs. As soon as the firmware goes public we’ll let you know.
The Twitter plugin tightly integrates Twitter to the contacts and the conversations. It imports your Twitter friends and saved search queries to contacts, and receives mentions/replies, DMs and Twitter search results as conversation threads. In addition, you can sent replies or DMs to any Twitter friend straight from contacts, simply by tapping on their Twitter IDs. In my opinion this isn’t the best twitter application currently available. Although it’s tightly integrated some necessary functions are missing. However, it’s still in the Extra-Devel repository and some functions might be added in due course. Tell us your thoughts about this plugin.
