toolsJust want to give everyone a quick heads up that Nokia has rolled out minor firmware update (3.2010.02-8) for Nokia N900 and you can get it as Firmware Over the Air (firmware over the air) through the Application manager or with Nokia Software Updater As well but in that case you'll lose all settings and apllications as well so be sure that you have valid back up before update.

If you haven’t been warned yet, than enable internet connection and refresh app manager and you should see the 16.2 MB large Firmware version 3.2010.02-8. It should be available for most of the generic product codes but owners of branded devices might have to wait a bit longer.

Nokia To Offer KOffice Based Office Viewer for Nokia N900

Thursday, 17 September 2009 16:38

Written by Apocalypso.

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... .. .

Nokia Is Surprised With Unanimously Positive Reactions Towards N900

Wednesday, 16 September 2009 21:02

Written by Apocalypso.

surprisedThe most ingenuous and powerful combination of software and hardware ever created has received tremendous buzz from both carriers and consumers and I would say even Nokia has been surprised with the success of its first Maemo powered smartphone and unanimously positive response they were receiving from large majority of participants at its recent Nokia World show in Stuttgart.

Not only consumers but whole mobile industry itself seems somewhat caught by surprise with the release of Nokia N900 and Nokia’s decision to switch its high-end devices from Symbian to Linux based Maemo platform. But it is not only Maemo, neither the hardware, nor the way it looks, it is ope... .. .

ARM Unveils 2GHz Dual Core Processor For Smartphones and MIDs

Wednesday, 16 September 2009 15:31

Written by Apocalypso.

armARM announced today the development of two Cortex-A9 MPCore hard macro implementations for the TSMC 40nm-G process, enabling silicon manufacturers to have a rapid and low-risk route to silicon for high-performance, low-power Cortex-A9 processor-based devices. The speed-optimized hard macro implementation will enable devices to operate at frequencies greater than 2GHz.

The dual core hard macro implementations are the result of ARM’s significant investment in advanced physical IP development in unison with processor and fabric IP technology, and leading-edge implementation flows from the EDA industry.

Advanced physical IP techniques have enabled critical circuits within the design to be replaced with highly tuned logic cells and mem... .. .

Nokia Has Took The Wraps Off Its Super-Secret PUSH N900 Project

Monday, 14 September 2009 19:21

Written by Apocalypso.

hacking

Last weekend at the onedotzero hack and mod workshop on London's South Bank, Nokia has finally took the wraps off its super-secret PUSH N900 project, with hopes to keep the excitement around its first Linux based smartphone alive by encouraging its developer base to use it in the most creative way possible.

The main intention of this project is to give designers, hackers, modders, creatives and artists the chance to get their hands on, and heads inside, the new Nokia N900 & the Maemo 5 platform; the most ingenuous and powerful combination of software and hardware that they have ever created!

To enter competition you’ll need to tell them how you would hack and mod the Nokia N900 & Mae... .. .

Nokia WILL ALLOW Carrier Customization Of The N900

Friday, 11 September 2009 00:00

Written by Chris McFann

denied_tmThere has been a pretty shocking and viral statement about Nokia not allowing carriers to customize the N900, Nokia's upcoming uberdevice. As we'd even reported here based on a report from Reuters, it was thought that Nokia would not allow the carrier to molest the Maemo monster in any way, a sort of stand for the consumer and the N900's open nature.

This brought a shock to the entire community. Nokia had been almost entirely locked out of the US market because of bad relations with the carrier cartels, and has been feverishly working to improve that standing by working closer with them. With this news, carriers may not carry the N9.... .. .

Thursday, 10 September 2009 17:15

Written by Apocalypso.

opensource_tm

Although customization and branding of a handset is usually one of the key issues for operators, Nokia is planning to improve user experience and satisfaction by keeping its Maemo platform and devices unlimited and truly open to anything! No more will carriers and manufactures tightly control the bits on your handset, for the first time users will be even able to put their own software on a high-end smartphone and enjoy the benefits of freedom and community.

Nokia Denies Reports About AT&T's Variant Of Nokia N900!

Tuesday, 01 September 2009 00:00

Written by Apocalypso.

n900_att_tmLiterally dozens of news sites and numerous prominent bloggers have picked up on the rumor that world’s largest maker of mobile phones plans to announce a WCDMA 850/1900/2100 MHz variant of its first Linux based device which would support AT&T's 3G network, but apparently it was only the result of a fanboy's mind as company has confirmed today that Nokia N900 won't be coming to the AT&T anytime soon!!

So everybody should now calm down as this is nothing but a rumor caused by anonymous tipster who claimed to have spoken with Nokia spokesman Joseph Gallo about Nokia's hottest smartphone and that he confirmed the existence of AT&T's 3G network friendly (850/1900/2100 MHz) version of the Nokia N900!

Nokia has reacted quickly and strongly insists that story reported by The Nokia Blog and others were untrue, adding that "There have been no announcements regarding a version that supports the 850/1900/2100MHz bands,".

Demo Of Hardware Accelerated Bounce Boing Voyage On Nokia N900 Looks Freakin Awesome

Tuesday, 08 September 2009 19:59

Written by Apocalypso.

bounce_maemoI just came across yet another Nokia N900 walkthrough video but what makes it different from all other hands-on previews that appeared since its official release last week is the eye-catching demo of the Bounce Boing Voyage game that reveals beautiful 3D graphic which takes advantage of the build in 3D hardware graphics acceleration!

The rendering quality offered by a hardware accelerated core and the OMAP chipset is obviously a lot better than through software rendering. The addition of high-performance hardware, Filtering Modes, MIPMapping and higher resolution textures massively improve the appearance of objects removing the ugly, pixelated blockiness seen in software rendering games on a new Nokia's N-Gage plat... .. .

The New and Awesome Nokia N900 Brings Specifications Beyond Your Wildest Imaginations

Thursday, 27 August 2009 00:00

Written by Apocalypso.

thumb_ubWell, with its 3,5" resistive touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, HSPA and Wi-Fi, 5 MPX cam with Carl Zeiss optic and dual led flash, huge in-built storage and pretty much the same design, the Nokia N900 doesn't look that different from the company’s flagship smartphone, Nokia N97.

As a matter of fact, at the first sight it doesn't seems something extraordinary but that's because you don't have the entire picture and because the real beauty comes from inside not from outside!

The first of all, Nokia N900 brings specifications beyond your wildest imaginations and is based on the new, fresh and eye-catching Maemo 5 software, fully open source operating system hailing from the computing world with revamped UI relying on grap... .. .
