If you’ve been following the release of the PS Jailbreak USB dongle (and subsequent downfall of Sony’s Playstation 3 console), then there’s a good chance that you’ve heard that an N900 can work just as well as the PSJB.

Nokia N900 Review: A Multi-Tasking Monster

The Nokia N900 is the latest and greatest smartphone brought to you by the same folks that brought you the not-so-great N97. But the N900 isn’t cut from the same cloth: it has a snappy operating system, faster processor, and a nice collection of completely free apps. Will the N900 follow the same path as [...]
