Video: Nokia N900 USB on The Go copying 1.46GB .avi Movie in 4 minutes(and playback)

| November 11, 2010 | 9 Replies

divan0 shares with us a pretty cool video of USB on the Go for the N900. We saw it the other day playing back a movie directly from a DVD drive over USB to Go. Here’s something a little more day-to-day/practical.

  • 2:04 N900 huge video file playback. Not a problem for the N900
  • 3:25 N900 Copying 1.46GB file from flash drive to N900
  • 07:50 N900 finishes copying – 4.25 minutes. That’s what my windows machine says it takes to copy a 700mb movie to my flash drive. (ha, 4 minutes not 3. My A-level math tutor shakes his head in shame)

    Actually one thing I don’t understand is why Nokia decided to go with Meego. What the hell advantageous does Meego/Intel have but Maemo does not have.

    Maemo was very near to a super computing device. After all it was nearly +4 years work and research. Nokia just needed new hardware and a little more work for N900/Maemo. For Meego Nokia need to do everything from the very beginning…

      Because the partnership with Intel would give them more opportunities and also a larger variety of devices to put the platform (MeeGo) on. MeeGo isn’t just for smartphones, it’s for netbooks, in-car infotainments, TV’s, tablets and other such devices. This would allow Nokia/Intel to deliver better apps and experience on all these devices. And working with Intel gives them more resources too. :)

      Maemo as great, but MeeGo will be AWESOME. It will be everywhere……….
