Network & Data – Nokia N900 vs. Apple iPhone 3Gs
Comprising this two beast of the mobile community could not change the choice of the people. I know that it won’t lead to that, but it´s good to establish the important difference and unique qualities that this two phones have between each other. I won´t talk about each specification of the phones and then compare against each other. What I´ll do it´s to talk about their punctual differences and special features.
I am going to compare each aspect on diverse post because if not, it would end up on Megapost and I don’t want to bore you that´s not my objective. I only want to inform you.
In the Network & Data aspect, we would find that both phones are very similar but with little differences.
- One of those is the possibility of having HSCSD (Improves the speed of transmission over the GSM network, for more information please click here) on the Nokia N900 while in the iPhone 3Gs is missing.
- Not surprising at all, we find that the iPhone 3Gs lacks of DNLA, a standard used by manufacturers to allow entertainment devices within the home to share their content with each other across a home network (more info here). Something that Apple has got us used to find when talking about sharing with other manufacturer´s devices.
- Then exist a little difference on the speed of transmission over the HSDPA, where the iPhone 3Gs only has a 7.2 Mbps while the Nokia N900 reach a 10Mbps.
- The last structural difference it´s the lack of an Infrared Port on the iPhone 3Gs. It´s not essential to have this, because it has became obsolete to establish a transmission, but we can´t forget that thanks to this little buddy we can have the benefit of converting our phones on Universal Remote Control!(Like on the Nokia N900, check here).
Conclusion: Beyond the infrared port lack, both phones have pretty much the same for regular users. For a more exquisite user, the Nokia N900 has better conditions. It´s just a few centimeters ahead of the iPhone 3Gs (in Network & Data aspects).
