Thursday, 21 August 2014 06:18

thoughts_tmDo you ever imagine running Maemo platform on other Mobile devices? Well, if you don’t like Nokia hardware [ how could anyone not like HQ Nokia devices made of plastic that looks and feels cheap ;o) ] but you do like this cute and easy to use open source operating system read on.

You see, Jykazu has managed to ‘run’ latest version of Maemo OS on an Windows Mobile powered HTC HD2 and upload video on his YouTube channel to show off how Maemo looks like on an amazing HD2's 4.3in WVGA (480x800) screen.

The only problem is that video is actually fake and it is apparently not possible, not yet at least, but who knows, Maemo is truly open source OS and in op... .. .

Thursday, 21 August 2014 06:18

thoughts_tmIt isn't over. Oh no. The mysterious N900 continues to be the subject of more mysterious viral marketing videos, courtesy of a vague video email from WOMWorld this morning.

This time it is set in the previously empty interrogation room first seen on MaemoProject.com, focus of a previous N900 contest and marketing campaign. You remember, right?

Click the penguin when it appeared to win an N900? Anyway, this time, the interrogation room is filled with 4 people, along with at least four others watching throu... .. .

Offline As It Happens: Get Your Hands On A Nokia N900!!!

Thursday, 21 August 2014 06:18

offline_tmWith the risk of repeating myself, I want to emphasize again that whoever is responsible for viral marketing and Nseries promotional videos deserves a medal!

The internet is an effective tool for viral marketing and Nokia continues to use YouTube and other social networks such as Facebook, MySpace and Flickr as a slick marketing tool to produce increases in brand awareness and to achieve other marketing targets.

Marketing fads come and go but YouTube and the viral advertising look like they are here to stay and here is yet another series of eye-catching, innovative, interesting and interac.. .. .

Wired.com's Review Editor On N900 : "Suck That iPhone!"

Thursday, 21 August 2014 06:18

n900_hands_onWired.com and Wired Magazine is a popular award winning US tech publisher popular with 25-50 year old male college grads making $100k+ per year, tech enthusiasts, and the Silicon Valley tech community. With a magazine circulation of just over 705,000, and a website with 11.2 million unique users per month (it says alot for your audience when they prefer the online information to the paper periodical), it represents a popular media outlet amongst the target demographic for the Nokia N900.

Danny Dumas, their hip, young Reviews Editor, has gotten his hands on the N900. On their Gadget Lab blog, he gives a short but thorough video overview of the N900, which he described as a "portable desktop device", which I think fits perfectly. Wired is credited with coining the term crowdsourcing, and may have just coined a new one I think fits aptly.

Pointing out its internet tablet plus phone configuration, Dumas points out its Linux operating system's hacker/developer friendliness, along with multitasking and the high quality camera. He also poin... .. .

VIDEO: Keyboard Makes Way For Control Surfaces

qwerty_tmMessaging related phones have become all the rage as the texting continues to grow as a preferred way of quick communication, sms, e-mail and messengers are very poplar way of the communication nowadays and Nokia N900 looks like the perfect choice if you want to get the rid of the t9 and stay connected with friends when you are away from a computer.

Full touchscreen devices offers user-friendly interface and works brilliantly in some applications such as web browsing or navigating through large number of photos but the usability breaks down significantly when you need to input a large amount of text.

Nokia N900 is also a full touchscreen device but as it also slides up lengthwise to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard with a REAL tactile feedback that quickly transform this powerful smartphone into mini laptop with huge touch sen... .. .

N900's Gaming Prowess Makes Competition Quake!!!

Thursday, 21 August 2014 06:18

quake_3_tmWe see games on mobiles everyday, but usually they're nothing close to their PC and console counterparts. But evidently, the N900 is no ordinary mobile device.

YouTube poster twaelti has given us a peek at the N900's graphical capabilities as well as the agility of the Maemo 5 OS. Showing the N900 running Quake III, the video is unlike anything we've ever seen on a mobile. I know we've seen ports of Quake and Doom on Symbian and Windows Mobile devices, but nothing as smooth and complete as this.

In fact, I see no difference in performance between the original version and this mobile port. Evidently, the TI OMAP 3430 processor based ARM Cortex-A8 platform is up for the job in regards to graphical heavy lifting... .. .
