Correction:

The N900 has no buttons on the front and was launched in 2009

yup...i used for a while and liked it a lot.. just needed a change, got my self an android (well a couple for that matter)...but the truth is if there're more apps, meego could be a winning os... dont think android is the best os - i had htc hero, desire hd, and recently switched to xperia arc... so far arc is the best among the three i've owned - much better ui, smoother, & a couple of better functions, but android bug remains, the phone would stutter and apps/widgets foreclose albeit very rarely compared to my prev htc phones... i'm more & more inclined to take up a wp7 for my nxt device, and should be one from nokia...wish they'll do with their wp7 what they've done with meego..i dont see why not 'coz hopefully on such a huge deal between nokia/mscft, nokia should get the privileges to tweak the os...

I'm looking at one right now and yes, there are no buttons on the front.

"first completely buttonless touchscreen-only phone" The n900 has a key-board and thus isn't a buttonless touchscreen-only phone.

Maybe they're calling it the first one without buttons because it has no keyboard, and/or because the N900 was marketed as a pocket computer? (which is essentially what a smartphone is, but still)
