n one more thing ...check out this site ..tell me can i do anything with it??
The Nokia N900 runs Maemo 5.  Maemo is a customized version of Linux.  It is open source in that the API's and development tools for writing applications for it are free.

http://Maemo.org is about the best site around for Maemo apps.  There are nearly 300 apps for Maemo 5, about 500 for the previous version (OS2008).  I don't know about an answering machine though.  There are other sites too

>to totally use this phone do u have to be a good programmer??
You can program in a variety of languages including Python, Java, and C++.  There are lots of tutorials and stuff you can learn with, but yea, you pretty much have to be a programmer-type.

The biggest draw for the N900 is that is easy for people to program and share apps, unlike the iPhone.  The other option which is becoming wildly popular are android phones, there are lots of them and new ones coming out every day.
