nimbuzz_tmAccording to a recent post and the poll results (Nokia Maemo 43%, Linux 19, Blackberry Bold 18%, Symbian UIQ 17% and Palm Pre just 3%) on the official Nimbuzz blog, the next supported device will be Nokia N900 and they’ll start with porting application to Maemo 5 platform as soon as possible!!!

The results show clearly that Nokia Maemo is one the most popular operating systems, with 43% of users votes it leads the list of most requested operating systems to be supported and leaves others trailing behind close to each other. Linux, Blackberry and Symbian OS are on the second, third and forth place.

Saturday, 02 August 2014 02:26

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.

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 thi... .. .

Nokia To Offer KOffice Based Office Viewer for Nokia N900

Saturday, 02 August 2014 02:26

kofficeThe KOffice team proudly announced today that Nokia has packaged their cross-platform office suite for Maemo 5 environment with addition of the new and finger friendly Maemo 5 UI.

This particularly means that KOffice is now fully compatible with the latest Maemo device but due the numerous bugs in this early beta stage it will not be embedded directly into the device and will be made available for download as 3rd party application in a typical Linux’s 'release early and often' policy.

Yeah I know, it doesn't sounds that brilliant but early and frequent releases are a critical part of the open source development model that works to your advantage and opens communication pathways between deve... .. .
