,----[ Quote ]
| January 2010 -- Opens a version of its 
| software store for its flagship N900 model 
| which runs the Linux operating system. The 
| Linux Maemo operating system is seen as key

| software platform, used in its flagship N900 
| phone, with Intel's Moblin which is also 
| based on Linux open-sourced software.

| The Nokia N900, a sophisticated gadget from
| Nokia is based on the Linux-based Maemo
| platform. It is also observed to be dubbed as a
| pocket computer. This advanced gadget is
| helpful for the users in a number of ways as it
| comes loaded with multifarious features and
| technologies

Firefox for Mobile RC - Nokia N900 just got better.

| 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.

Nokia N900 Review

| I have to say the Nokia N900 is probably the
| first and only Linux-based mobile device I
| have ever reviewed and I certainly hope
| won't be the last.

| 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.
