Aava Mobile unveils worldâs first fully open mobile device

,----[ Quote ]
| There are many open platforms for software 
| in the tech world from operating systems to 
| development environments for various 
| software. We rarely see open hardware or 
| mobile devices though. Aava Mobile has 
| unveiled what it calls the worldâs first 
| fully open mobile device at MWC.
| [...]
| The reference design is aimed at Moblin 2.1 
| and Android for the OS options with plans 
| for support of MeeGo in the future. 
| Features include an extended touch screen, 
| full HD video capability, micro USB port, 
| HD video conferencing, dual mics, 3D sound 
| and UI, GSM capable, and it has GPS, WiFi, 
| compass, and an accelerometer.

Is MeeGo Linuxâ Answer to iPad? 

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel, Nokia and the MeeGo community are 
| thinking much bigger than tablets, phones 
| or netbooks. While MeeGo greets competition 
| with the iPad head on, it will also compete 
| in a variety of device categories not yet 
| fully defined thanks to its approach to 
| open source development and cross-device 
| portability provided by Qt. The "killer 
| app" is not a single device locked down 
| with crippling DRM. The "killer app" is 
| your content and the ability to access the 
| Internet from anywhere: a phone, a car, a 
| kitchen or television regardless of the 
| device or who makes it.
| It seems clear that Jobs miss-stepped by 
| not thinking big enough because - despite 
| his brilliance - Apple products are being 
| confined to the limits of his team's 
| imaginations, while the future is about 
| accessing content from anywhere.


Nokia patches N900 firmware

| It's the third N900 firmware update to be 
| posted since the gadget's November 2009 
| release. It's version 3.2010.02-8 and it 
| weighs in at a mere 16.2MB.

Notion Ink Adam tablet debuts

,----[ Quote ]
| With all the buzz and speculation that
| surrounded the months leading up to the
| official unveiling of the Apple iPad, most of
| us expected to see a rush of similar tablet
| computers hit the market. One of the newest
| tablets to be unveiled in the wake of the iPad
| is the Notion Ink Adam tablet. The Adam tablet
| has features that sound a lot like a netbook at
| first glance.


Linuxâs Tablet Answer: Notion Ink ADAM

,----[ Quote ]
| The truly revolutionary component on this
| tablet is its screen, which incorporates Pixel
| Qi technology to give a similar experience as
| e-Ink when the backlight is off. This gives
| the tablet its godly battery life,  and allows
| it to directly challenge the reading
| experience of eReaders.  It is a powerful
| tablet, and the deviceâs multitasking with
| Flash support is undoubtedly a response to the
| iPadâs inability to do either.
