Che gli utenti Linux e Open Source stiano diventando sempre piu` appetibili a livello commerciale sta diventando sempre piu` evidente, con il proliferare di prodotti vari ed eventuali “aperti”. L’ultimo arrivato, in ordine di tempo, e` il nuovo router/access point Netgear WGR614 recentemente annunciato erede del KWGR614 recentemente andato in end of life. Diversamente da [...]

Nuova release per OS2008, basata su Maemo 4.1 (nome in codice Diablo). Per il momento, ma se tutto va bene sara` l’ultima volta, e` ancora richiesto di flashare il palmare (con tutta la conseguente trafila di restore/riconfigura/antani!). A partire dai prossimi aggiornamenti, invece, la procedura` sara` snellita e potra` (FINALMENTE!) essere effettuata direttamente dal palmare. [...]
Doh! Just found OS2008 has been silently updated! :) I’ve just finished flashing my N810 and hunting for changes! As always, updated ITOS can be found at http://maemo.org/downloads/OS2008/ * Update 2008.02.20 This release fixes the power on (boot) problem only. If you are not having this issue you may as well keep using the 50-2 [...]
Right after a few hours of use, web browser on N810 became pretty slow while loading, hanging for about 10 seconds while launching (Bug 2753). I had the same problem on N800, but I thought it was because of my experiments ;). But now I am on a fresh install. I’m still trying to trace [...]
This was supposed to be a comment to my post about alternatives to Matchbox on ITs but, folks, such a great news can’t be relegated in comment! Drums rolling, please… Penguinbait is going to relase KDE 3.5.8! :D Development of KDE for Nokia has begun again!!! I currently have a working copy of FULL KDE [...]
I’m trying, trust me, I’m hardly trying to understand Nokia marketing guys. But I really can’t understand how the take decisions. I just found (thanx to Giskard) that N810 is available and in stock on UK’s Nokia Shop. I know, Nokia is a big company, and things like that. But, as I already asked some [...]
One word review: “great!” Ok, was it too short? :D I just installed updated FM Radio software and, folks, we’ve got another great piece of software here. FM Radio was a great deal on N800 already, but here we have a couple brand new features which really make this application a must-to-install-as-soon-as-possibile! :) 1: now [...]
One of the most common complaints (beside not being a phone :-D ) about Internet Tablets is not being good a PIM. Perhaps Garnet will (soon) bring P3 (Palm PIM Power) to Maemo platform. In the meantime, have we got any solution at hand? Yes? No? Perhaps? Well, from my (as usual) point of view [...]
I’ve just finished watch Canola 2 teaser (Flash or Html) and, folks, looks like we’ve got a killer application here! The new interface seems very promising.
The video (here) shows Canola 2 running on a 770 equipped with OS2007HE and the results are amazingly fluid, things should be even better on N8x0. Beside
Canola could really be a killing application for Internet Tablets N810, even if the single MicroSD on N810 could somehow be a threshold, 8GB MSD aren’t easy to find yet). Also being able to handle multimedia contents in such an easy and comfortable way could really help making more people aware of what IT can be “useful” for, beside simply accessing the internet.
Portable media players are another kinda interesting market. What about an Internet Tablet which can be made in a portable media player with a single touch of your finger? Scree real estate isn’t really a problem on IT family, as well as definition and brightness, after all.
We only have to wait 9 more days!
Comments welcome… ;)
After having spent last three days with OS2008 on Godot (my N800:-) ) it’s time to draw some conclusions. Speed For sure OS2008 is hella fast! Using it on N800 is a pleasure. CPU speed management’s improvements are there, and you can feel it. Opening menus and launching apps is a pleasure, well even more [...]
