Nokia N900

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Ended up buying it and try to see if I can integrate it with Google contacts, voice and maps. I am also trying to buy a data only plan to play with it.

I’d appreciate any inputs you might have on the above topics.

BTW, when you bought stuff from dell.com(small business), did Dell charge you a tax when you bought your N900 there online? I was surprised they did charge tax this time… They did not do this before ( a friend of mine confirmed this but he bought studd from Dell about a year ago; Dell.com used to have legal issues regarding taxes collection for online orders), neither does Amazon.com.

Sent an email to Dell, they automate the response saying they collect taxes for all states. In receipt it was noted as IVR??? What’s that?

By the way, talking about the shopping experience online with dell.com. Surprisedly they only give you one chance to view the receipt, once you passed that page, you have nowhere to find a complete receipt! It took minutes, not seconds, for online order to show up in order history. You HAVE TO add your email again to ask them to notify you if they start shipping your phone.(I was a registered user with email address as log in. Did you hear me, Dell.com?)

They did not automatically sent you an email right after the order. I have to manually input my email address to send the order confirmation page to my email address.

All in all, I like Amazon way better. I bought lots of stuff from Amazon.com and took for granted that I can always get my complete receipt any time, and that I should get a confirmation email the minute I placed the order. But all those do not happen at dell.com.

Just a surprise to me as dell.com only deal with online orders. They have to do something to keep up with other e-commerce web sites.
