Nokia N900 videos: Conf. calling, email/SMS/IM, settings, and games
Here we go with some more video coverage of the Nokia N900 folks. This time I answered some reader questions in video format and showed a few other aspects of the Nokia N900. Check out the videos below for more about conference calls, email, SMS, and IM, N900 settings, and games loaded on the N900.
As you can see in the video below, conference calling with 2 additional parties (and yourself) is supported on the N900. I showed the process in the video, but you simply place and connect one call, tap the upper menu, place and connect the 2nd call, tap the upper menu and select to Start Conference Call. That’s it folks.
Email, SMS, and IM
POP, IMAP, and Exchange email is supported on the N900 and the client is pretty full featured, with support for HTML email. SMS is slick with threaded messages. Instant Messaging is nice, especially with live status of your contacts and their connections.
I know this is probably pretty boring, but people do like to know what kind of settings are present on the device. This walk through shows them to you and you can see they are all nicely in one place. That said, many apps have even more settings within each application.
There 5 games loaded on the N900 out of the box, including Blocks, Chess, Mahjong, Marbles, and Bounce. They look pretty good on the high resolution display and show off the N900 too. I am not a huge gamer, but these looked nice and played pretty well. The Bounce game stuttered a bit at times, but remember this is still a pre-production N900.
