Hello, I'm new to this board and apologies if these questions have allready been asked.
I'm due an upgrade in April, I know that seems quite far off but I wanted to see what phones are on the market so I dont pick a lemon! I'm on vodafone uk on a monthly contract. The last phone I really liked was my Palm Treo which I thought was immense. When I came to upgrade last year I didn't really look into it much and picked the Sony Ericsson C902. This time around I want to make sure I pick a phone I'm happy with. I have been looking at various phones, the new Palm did have my eye until it went to O2. I cant stand Iphones so next thing that I looked at was the N900. After reading many reports and the various speculation of wether it is or isnt coming to Vodafone I'm happy that it is.
The questions I have are pretty simple but just wanted to get some clarification from people allready using the N900. I want to be able to have my hotmail emails sent direct to my phone, can this be done with the N900?
Also all this talk about branded and unbranded with Voda, and Nokia saying they dont want it branded. Does that mean if I get the phone from Vodafone it may possibly be branded by Vodafone and if so will that stop me being able to update the firmware on it? I'm quite keen to get this phone and be able to use its awesome power, but not so keen on it being limited by Vodafone branding.
Your thoughts and advice would be very much appreciated.
