Nokia N900 Linux-based mobile

,----[ Quote ]
| FINNISH PHONE MAKER Nokia's N900 is a 
| Linux-based mobile device with a number of 
| advanced features, including application 
| multi-tasking, built-in VoIP support, 
| stereo speakers, graphics acceleration, 
| video output to a TV, and more.
| Announced last August and available now 
| from Vodafone, Carphone Warehouse and 
| Nokia's online shop, the Nokia N900 is 
| part of the firm's N Series of multimedia 
| handsets. However, it is more like a tiny 
| computer that can make voice calls rather 
| than a smartphone. This is demonstrated by 
| the fact that the main screen resembles a 
| computer desktop, and the phone features 
| are relegated to just one application 
| among many others.

Breaking the Nokia Booklet. Part 2.

| Two things are clear from this experience: 
| (1) Nokia made a very poor choice with the 
| GMA 500, and (2) Wubi is a fantastic way 
| to get Linux on your freedom-hating 
| machine.

| In Part 2 of this continuing series I 
| managed to free Nokiaâs Booklet 3G from 
| the clutches of Windows using Wubi. Today 
| weâll be looking at a Linux distribution 
| made specifically for netbooks â 
| Jolicloud.


Nokia Q4 shows it ain't dead yet

| Nokia had a pretty decent fourth quarter 
| and is showing the first signs that savage 
| cost-cutting and redundancies might just 
| be working.
| Sales were down four per cent to â12bn and 
| operating profit jumped 132 per cent to 
| â1.1bn.



Nokia N900 - Pros and Cons

,----[ Quote ]
| In one of my earlier posts I had mentioned
| some of the things I was enjoying doing with
| my Nokia N900. Now that I have had the device
| to play with for a solid month I would like to
| highlight what I feel are the pros and cons of
| the device.

OpenOffice.org and the Gimp on the N900

,----[ Quote ]
| I have had my N900 for about one month now.
| During that time I have enjoyed several
| âWow!â moments. For example, being able to
| use the web just as if I was onha my
| desktop, including heavy javascript and
| flash sites such as Google Maps, Google
| Docs, GMail, Photobucket, etc. was amazing
| to me. Being a Linux user for many years, I
| really enjoy having access to a terminal
| application with access to root and to
| tools like the vi text editor. Being able
| to use Python to develop right on the
| device and to be able to use my own old
| Python programs, such as 7Squeeze, gave me
| that very warm feeling of validation. But,
| the N900 had one more big Wow! moment in
| store for me, one that I truly did not
| expect.


Nokia announces bugfix release for Qt and beta version of Qt for Maemo

,----[ Quote ]
| The first bugfix release for version 4.6 of
| Qt GUI toolkit, acquired by Nokia in 2008,
| is now available. Similarly, an update for
| the cross-platform Qt Creator development
| environment, version 1.3.1, is also
| available to download. Both combine
| numerous fixes with performance
| enhancements and revised documentation. Qt
| 4.6.1 contains more than 90 changes, whilst
| debugging (especially under Mac OS X 10.6
| 'Snow Leopard') and the C++ editor have
| both been revised in Qt Creator. Both
| technologies are available on the Qt
| project's Git resource under the open
| source LGPL 2.1 license.


Nokia N900 Already Available at Carphone Warehouse

| Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia launched
| during the ongoing year its first handset
| running under the Maemo 5 operating system,
| the Nokia N900, a phone that is expected to
| arrive on the UK market as soon as January 14
| is here. However, enthusiasts in the UK won't
| have to wait until then to grab one of these
| beauties, as the handset has been already put
| on sale via Carphone Warehouse, though a
| contract agreement with Vodafone is still
| required.

Nokia N900 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia N900 is the final product which opens up a
| new path for the Finnish smartphone producer.
| After Google, which launched its new open source
| operating system for mobile phones, Nokia raised
| the stakes a few months later with its own
| vision, which is called Maemo. Android OS, as
| well as Maemo are both based on the well-known
| Linux platform, but they are pretty much
| different because they are the results of two
| different working teams. Before getting into
| more in-depth information, do not overlook the
| fact that we will be reviewing an Internet
| tablet, with some limited phone capabilities.


Nokia N900 review

,----[ Quote ]
| The N900 is Nokiaâs most hyped phone this year,
| running on the Linux-based Maemo OS. Does it
| show that Symbian should be scrapped or is it
| just another touch screen disappointment? We
| review the N900 to find out.
| Nokiaâs recent news that it may make the move
| from Symbian to Maemo for all its smartphones
| wonât come as a disappointment to those who
| have been tut tutting over Symbianâs antiquated
| S60 OS.


Firefox for Mobile RC - Nokia N900 just got better.

,----[ Quote ]
| The aim of the Firefox for Mobile is to
| replicate - in a mobile environment- the
| same user experience of Firefox on the PC.
| With the list of impressive features that
| have been pumped into the mobile version, I
| think Mozilla is on its way to achieving
| that goal.
