Ok, I may have exaggerated there but my opinion is based on Android 1.6 on the LG540 which features nice custom tweaks by LG. In my opinion its much better than Symbian though Symbian...

Lightbulb Inspired by N900's Maemo 5 UI

Totally agree

Got a Nokia 5800 in the summer. The UI may not be sleek and shiny but it does the job and more functional than most gimmicky phones and is kind to the battery too.

Having used Maemo4 based N900 for almost a week, the game is one for Nokia to lose. N900 is really off the hook - just like a mini netbook. They have created a new category - the mobile computer. Its...
