The Nokia N900 To HTC Desire X

Well The end of my Nokia N900 did not come with a bang, but a bonus, a Christmas bonus gift card from my current employer. And and even though the N900 was still pulling it’s weight, it wasn’t current technology. The choosen replacement is not a top-of-the-line, it was priced to matched the value of the gift card and the mininum hardware specs I applied to make it useful. Hence the HTC Desire X, a relative new dual core Snapdragon S4 with version 4.0.4 Android.


And it is in White, Another irony as my laptop went from Apple MacBook white to Clevo Black, now my phone from Black to White.

So far I’m happy with the choice, but I’ve only had it a few days, and while I think it’s already a better phone than the N900, it will never replace the the N900 as a computer.

Oh, and one other thing, it doesn’t look like an iPhone.

UPDATE: I just got the Android 4.1.1 upgrade, Thanks HTC

  1. It took me a while (many months) to finally stop using my Nokia N900. It is so different to anything Samsung or HTC or even Apple could ever offer. I guess you didn’t want to wait around for the new Jolla open source device (available later this year). Could be interesting.

  2. It wouldn’t have been an issue if I thought it would run on my N900, but knowing that it’s really is obsolete I really not sure any major vendor will built a device for Jolla.

  3. Well, they say they will have new hardware, their own and if it is anything like the Nokia N900 then I would be interested, but I would imagine Jolla running on anything that can currently run Android or can be used to dual boot (most Android Smartphones can dual boot provided they are running the latest Siyah kernel.
