go to www.maemo.org or just go to apps manager on your phone. theres hundreds of apps out already.

 

android apps will only run if youve got dualboot nitdroid on your device.

Also bare in mind that S60 has full Java Mobile support, whereas Maemo 5 doesn't, so S60 gets a lot of apps from there (although a lot of them being somewhat dodgy).:smileyindifferent:

Probably not a good idea to tell someone who hasn't heard of those catalogs to install and download from them though, at least without proper warning.

Re: can n900 run android apps ??

enable the extras and the testings, they should be save .

and you can get nfs undercover, asphalte 5 hd, tony clancy's hawx, nova, sims 3.... OOPS that was bad, but i have them all :smileywink: but can;t post anything about them here, as that might be considered piracing, i was banned for 24 hours from another forum for "talking" about them .

Dude, you must be smoking your socks or something, because none of those games are available for Maemo.

so do they harm the phone ?? i was gonig to buy n900 but i thought the OS would be a problem bcuz it's kind new and no other devices are running it, also it doesn't have full support for android, but if the apps are not a problem, i'll go buy it .

and thanx alot

[ Edited ]

only the devels may harm the phone, worst case senario you can just reflash, and the phone will turn back as new, and for apps it depends, it has very nice games like nfs undercover, asphalte5, angry birds !, openarena,...... and a big number of nice apps and lovely widgets, but it depends, can you please tell us what kind of apps you like, for example the extras catalogue apps are found here http://downloads.maemo.org/ take a look, and for android, well its working nice, i tried arround 25 apps on it, and all of them worked great, just remember that the downloaded apps from the android marketplace works way better than the built in one, for exaple the opera mini browser on android works a lot faster than the built in one.
and btw i am one of these guys that never used linux before, i didn't even heard of it, but i love my n900, its like an army swiss knife, it can do a lots of things, lately the beta version of usb host mode just camed out (with it you can connect almost everything that connects to a computer via usb, so you can connect keyboards, mouses, dvd drives !! other phones to your n900, but its stil in beta.)
