Video: The Phones Show – Episode 96 – mynokiablog have a cameo appearance with N900!

| December 5, 2009 | Reply

I’m an eager fan of Steve Litchfield’s the Phone Show [aka The Smartphone Show] and was honoured to be asked to help out in Episode 96 where Steve gives an introduction to the wonderful N900 and Maemo 5.

There’s some Symbian news and top 10 apps for something called an iPhone – what is that?

See me from 07:25 onwards ^_^


As Steve points out, the N900 is an interim step (“Step 4 of 5”) showing where Nokia’s going with Maemo (and it’s the right direction btw!). The follow up is supposed to be coming spring 2010, with more polished hardware which Steve guesses will have capacitive (hurrah!) and slightly bigger touch screen.

We know already the new Maemo 6 device will be supporting multitouch and the OS is going to be even better than Maemo5 (note, N900 can be upgraded to Maemo6 – though it probably won’t be having multitouch as the N900’s screen doesn’t support it – supposedly).

I will rant till the cows come home, but please Nokia…Xenon Flash? It has given my N82 so much longevity and usability – XF will turn the N920 or whatever the N900’s successor is into a true all in one! Please, please, please, please, please? ^____^
