Internet Tablet Talk has the scoop on the N810! This is the next internet tablet and it has a slide out keyboard! This is a awesome addition to the Nokia series of internet tablets. Stay tuned to the temporary blog for internet tablet talk (in case the main site is flooded) for more information.
Internet Tablet Talk has a story about the Hildon API running on a laptop! This means hildon will scale to resolutions larger then the Nokia 770 and N800 Internet Tablets. This also COULD man a OLPC type device.
What’s Hildon? It’s the UI that the Nokia internet tablets use with thier Maemo install. It’s a nice UI and it seems to be easy to understand to me anyway.
Did some googling and found the Release Notes:
- Improved quality of WLAN connections
- Wi-Fi certification included
OK…that works. My WiFi was a bit iffy at home but was ok at work (where there is no WPA….don’t ask!).
I just checked the download site for the Nokia 770 and a new version of the firmware is out. It’s called OS 2006 Edition version 3.2006.49-2. I have loaded it on my 770 and it seems to be a bit zipper. I wish I knew what was fixed, but the release notes have not been posted to the Nokia site yet.
Since I had to rebuild my 770 after the firmware update, I also discover that SpotYah has finally had updates for Python 2.5 which has been available for quite sometime. Check it out here.
I also got Bashpodder working yet again on the 770. Here’s a hint…put the script on your MMC and then all you have to do is install wget and osso-xterm. You don’t need bash. It runs fine under sh. Run it by typing: sh bashpodder.shell at the prompt . You have to do this because your running off of a FAT16 or FAT32 (not sure which…) filesystem and the Unix permisisons just do not exist for sh to check.
I was listening to today’s Daily Source Code and Nokia apparantly gave Adam Curry as a gift a new Nokia N800. While Patricia and Christina don’t necessarily like it, Adam does and he says screw the iPhone and let’s do something like this. Build better stuff on Open Source and Apple Inc. will have to open up more.
If you are buried under a rock and have not listened to the Daily Source Code, listen to today’s show and then subscribe!
I was listening to Ken Radio’s World Tech Roundup and co-host Andy Abramson, stated that the Nokia 770 is the biggest and most popular Linux based appliance ever. I wonder if it’s true?
I do know that he was right about CompUSA not being able to keep it in stock. During Christmas, as soon as it was in stock online, it sold out. I guess he’s right.
This post was tapped out on my 770!
