Talking Nokia N900 and Maemo 5 with Ari Jaaksi

Talking Nokia N900 and Maemo 5 with Ari Jaaksi

We sat down at a roundtable this afternoon with Nokia's Ari Jaaksi, VP of software at the company, and talked about the Nokia N900 and the Maemo 5 OS it runs.  Describing the N900 as "your internet device on the go" and Maemo as "putting the internet first", it's obvious that Jaaksi - and Nokia - have the MID segment in their sights; however they're also upfront about the issues they're going to face not only with their first-gen hardware but the ongoing development of the platform.

Nokia Internet Tablet wireless PC sub-display hack

If you like the idea of a secondary LCD screen, such as Nanovision's UM-7x0 series, but are feeling less than flushed with cash after the holidays, how about turning your Nokia Internet Tablet into a wireless sub-display?  Obviously that's only helpful if you already have a Nokia Internet Tablet, but assuming that's the case there's a relatively straightforward guide at the Internet Tablet Talk forums.  In effect, you use a virtual display driver called ZoneScreen to fool your Windows 2k/XP/Vista PC into treating the Tablet as another monitor.

If you've built a media PC and are now looking for a reasonable wireless keyboard and mouse, how about using the Nokia N800 or N810 Internet Tablet instead?  BlueMaemo is a port of ReMoko for the Linux-based Maemo OS used on the touchscreen devices, and basically offers the Internet Tablet as a combined keyboard and mouse device via the Bluetooth HID profile.

Nokia patents dual screen clamshell phone

Nokia patents dual screen clamshell phone

Nokia’s ugliest idea for a phone yet, it’s an egregiously mis-proportioned device featuring dual screens, one or both of them presumable being a touch screen. It looks like they took an N800, thinned it down a bit, and put a giant crease in the middle.

Dual screens aren’t new, and the only way you could get by with such an ugly design is to either make it into a gaming system (DS anyone?) or to pack this thing full of features. The LG Venus is the first phone I’ve seen that had dual screens, and I haven’t held or seen it myself, but I wasn’t too impressed by its appearance.

If information on Nokia's N810 Internet Tablet is your current poison of choice, then you'll want to go hang out with ThoughFix who is blogging the hell out of the compact net-surfing device. Not content with a nicely detailed overview video of the device (which you can see after the cut), he's been comparing it to its N800 predecessor, checking out video performance (as the N800 was renowned for promising big things in mobile video but lacking the processor grunt to back up those claims) and generally exploring why the N810 should have space in your bag.

Nokia adds new N series internet tablet to the line up

This will be the third version of this product, indicating a good level of success for a once-perceived niche market. This time they are pimping it out with a full keyboard.

The model number is the N810, so really it will just be an upgraded version of the N800. The internet tablet will have the Mozilla browser, Skype, a camera, music player, oh, and the best part, they are integrating the GPS hardware and a bunch of pre-loaded maps.

Not much is known, as manufacturers are getting smarter and filing to have just about everything blocked from public view. What is known is that its made by Nokia, fits the pictured outline, and isn’t a phone.

We also know that it will have Bluetooth, WiFi, and GPS all built in. Other than that we don’t know much else other than it did pass all its tests, so it should make it to market soon.

Nokia N95 has no problems with streaming media

Nokia N95 has no problems with streaming media

Nokia's N800 might be intended as your lazy-day web surfing companion, but there's been some controversy as to how well the tiny tablet can cope with such niceties of the modern online world as streaming video.  Well, maybe the N800 has issues but it's good to see that the N95 smartphone certainly doesn't; in this clip, Steve Garfield has a good browse of YouTube and Rocketboom on the handset, proving that it's perfectly capable of mobile media.

 

As Steve points out, this is exciting not only for the potential to enjoy yourself on the bus (without getting told off by the driver) but as the first time that a single handset can "record a video, upload it via WiFi, then subscribe, download and watch."
