Cool Nokia N900 feature: FM transmitter
The more I use the N900 the more I am liking the device. Last night I tested out the FM transmitter functionality that lets you output audio content to a car or home FM radio. I used GPodder to download some podcasts and then selected a rather open FM station in the settings on the N900. Finding an open station in Western Washington is not easy as our FM frequency bands are packed with stations. I previously tried other Nokia devices with integrated FM transmitters (N85 and N78 for example) and ones that plug into your headset jack, but have not had much success or hope for the N900.
I was pleasantly surprised when my podcasts played in my Jeep and actually sounded pretty good. A direct connection (via 3.5mm cable or cassette adapter) still sounds much better, but the N900 holds its own and can be great for traveling.
BTW, I wrote and posted this blog post from WordPy on the Nokia N900. WordPy works better on this N900 than I have seen it working on any S60 device and you may just find me posting quite a bit directly from the device. Now to play with image insertion and more.
