Nokia N900 web browser; kids deem it best of all phones

The Nokia N900 has an awesome we browser and it has handled every site I have thrown at it so far. The ultimate test came tonight though as my daughters and I were waiting for parents to pick up their kids at soccer practice. They took the N900 and typed in the Webkinz URL. Webkinz is a very flash heavy site that doesn’t even work on my MSI Wind netbook due to the limited display resolution. It is a site where you manage your stuffed animal, play games, and take part in a virtual world. I was very surprised to see that my girls were able to login and use the site right from the N900. Wow, now that was impressive!

The best browsers I have tried before this were the Opera Mobile browser on Windows Mobile and the Safari browser on the iPhone 3GS. I know it is still early in my evaluation, but it looks like the N900 may take the crown for best mobile browser that serves up the full Internet.

I would be interested in knowing the complete list of apps that are loaded on the phone right out of the box. Finding apps for maemo will be a immediate obstacle for me. Thanks.

@Robert: you will be pleased to know that n900 is the best avaiable mobile web browser… it has handled every flash video site.. well without a hitch.. plus a recent tweak allows you to play even flash 10 videos too.. so if u r planning to buy one.. go ahead without hesitation..
