The Nokia N900 gets an unofficial firmware update
We just have to admit the Nokia N900 is something like a superman in the cell phone world. How come? Well, this Maemo-based device is equipped with a processor running at the downright frightening 1,700MHz, runs Google Chrome without a hitch and allows its owners to play computer games, not to mention the Flash support it comes with is light years ahead of what contemporary smartphones offer. We do hope that MeeGo (Maemo+Moblin) devices will only get better with time.

It's interesting to note that the customer support for the device remains active, probably due to the strong Maemo community that was created, even if the device has no future really. Thanks to all the people supporting the platform, owners of the Nokia N900 can now download the firmware update even before it's officially released. The changes that version 1.2 brings along are major – the device runs faster, scrolling is much smoother, Flash has been updated as well, there is new application organizer, etc. The full list of all changes as well as links to download the software can be found via the source link. Still, keep in mind this is an unofficial update, so installing/using it may involve certain risks.

mms is not available on n900, however you can receive mms.... many users said you could install fmms... but i've not installed it yet as it isnt an official add-on therefore some risks...

I use fmms without problems. After downloading Fapn and the Fmms programs, you need to create a MMS apn and switch to that internet connection when you want to download a MMS message. The mms message pops up on your phone similar to an email or sms alert.
