Hash: SHA1

| The Nokia N900 has some powerful guts. The device packs a powerful ARM 
| Cortex-A8 processor and has 1GB of memory for running applications. The N900 
| also features OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration, opening a window of 
| opportunity for high-quality mobile games.   


PC-Z1: Sharpâs Ubuntu-powered, touchscreen âMobile Internet Toolâ

,----[ Quote ]
| Sharp says the device is targeted as users who look for a device that rolls 
| Internet access, an electronic dictionary and an e-Book function into one. 
| The PC-Z1 goes on sale in Japan on September 25 for $450 (in white and 
| black). Sharp hasnât said anything about international sales plans yet.

| Qt will become the API across Nokia devices, which means developers might
| actually start writing applications for them. Qt is much easier for quick and
| dirty applications, and proven for heavyweights such as Google Earth, Opera
| and Skype, where high performance is a necessity.

Nokiaâs Free Software bullshit and insults in Maemo

,----[ Quote ]
| Thereâs a wiki page in Maemo explaining why there are some proprietary
| software. That page needs to be passed by the bullshit filter, like I said in
| my comment, Nokia is far from being friendly to Free Software. Theyâre
| actually quite aggressive and strongly lobby for the legalization of software
| patents in Europe. Donât be fooled by the sugar coating, they are not your
| friend. So what is in the wiki page after you pass the bullshit filter?
| Â Â * Brand We think that âopen sourceâ reduces our brand value
| Â Â * Differentiation Proprietary software is much better, just use it
| Â Â * Legacy We donât want to be shamed by the garbage we forcefeed upon you
| Â Â * IPR & licensing issues Software Patents are good, just buy the freaking
| Â Â licenses from us.
| Â Â * Security Since we sell dangerous products, we take your freedom away so
| Â Â you donât make the mistake of getting proof theyâre crap (like their
| Â Â batteries, which the phones must know the limits of)
| Â Â * Third party Just accept that we know best and choose from the best


Sharp intros 5in ARM-based netbook

| Asus may not be so keen on ARM-based netbooks, but Sharp certainly is. Today,
| it launched the PC-Z1 Netwalker, a weeny netbook based around a 5in display
| and Ubuntu Linux and an ARM Cortex A8-derived CPU.


Sharp launch Linux based Netwalker in Japan

| The Ubuntu Linux on the PC-Z1 is a based on the Ubuntu 9.0.4 for ARM port,
| and with Firefox and OpenOffice, still leaves around 2GB free on the internal
| flash storage.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
