I hear you'll be able to dual boot the N900 with Meego via a developer preview release. Personally, I'd wait for the E7 unless you need a phone right now. From what I've seen, it looks very good.

Well thanks for replyin! I am in no hurry to buy a phone but its about the operating system that causing the real confusion:

E7 (looks very impressive) = Symbian^3 device
N900 = Maemo 5

Maemo is an impressive OS, with the caveats being that it's more of a mini-computer experience than a phone experience, and Maemo dies with the N900 since Nokia is moving to Meego.

Symbian ^3 is more phone-like and more Nokia-like. It's also here to stay for a while. In that way, the E7 is a more solid bet for the future than the N900, and ^3 is likely to get updates from Nokia.

Meego looks very intriguing, though again it's a bit more on the mini-computer end of things in terms of UI right now. It's hard to make a firm statement about it because the final OS isn't out yet and we won't see Meego phones until 2011.
