What extra functionality would you most like to see in the Nokia N900?

| Yesterday we posted a story calling for 
| your suggestions on what we should do 
| with the N900 when we finally get hold of 
| ours. The response has been overwhelming 
| â in less than 24 hours over 80 of you 
| have shared your ideas, leaving heaps of 
| smart suggestions (read them all here), 
| and theyâre still flooding in.

| Applications created for Nokia's N900 
| smartphone will be easier to port to 
| future versions of the company's Maemo 
| Linux operating system as well as to 
| Symbian and Windows Mobile, after Nokia 
| officially ported its Qt graphical 
| toolkit to Maemo 5.

The Nokia N900 â Not just an iToy, but a lot more fun

| So, what does the N900 offer for 
| developers? Freedom! Yes, the N900 is a 
| heaven for coding artists. For example, 
| with the N900 developers have open access 
| to device hardware, and you can talk 
| about it (as opposed to the iPhone 
| developers). This means that, as with 
| desktop Linux, you can expect lots of 
| deep coding information for Maemo (the 
| N900âs version of Linux) freely available 
| trough the web. The N900 out of the box 
| has support for more programming 
| languages than any other mobile platform, 
| and there are surely more to come. 
| Already, you can write applications in C, 
| C++, Python, etc. For the GUI layer you 
| can use either GTK or Qt, the two most 
| popular GUI tool-kits in Linux.



Hands On Nokia N900 smartphone demo

| We managed to get a little quality time with the
| Nokia N900 smartphone running Maemo and Linux. This
| smartphone, sporting killer specs and 3G HSDPA for T-
| Mobile US and Europe should begin shipping in the
| next few weeks. Notice how quick the device is when
| switching between desktop screens and applications--
| the multitasking is very impressive thanks to 256
| megs of RAM and virtual memory that brings it up to 1
| gig of application RAM.


Nokia N900 â Top of the Hacks

,----[ Quote ]
| Push N900 invites hackers, mods, creatives, and coders to push
| the Linux powered N900 to its limits and if you havenât
| already begun creating your masterpiece you should probably
| get cracking, as the competition, in which you can get your
| hands on a Nokia N900 and funding to realise your designs,
| ends on the 11th October.


Nokia N900 Gets Full Review

,----[ Quote ]
| The Nokia N900 takes the functionality of the
| older Nokia Tablet devices and repackages them
| into a slimmed down PDA device that features some
| design similarities with the Nokia N97. So, we
| get a full QWERTY keyboard sans the tilted slide
| function, 3.5-inch touchscreen but with a higher
| resolution. However, the real added bonus is the
| powerful Linux Maemo OS. Needless to say, we
| canât wait to get our hands on especially now the
| first full-on reviews are appearing.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
