| June 1, 2010 | 6 Replies

You may have seen MeeGo on a netbook. The interface looked pretty similar to Intel’s Moblin for netbooks. As Engadget discovered on a 10-inch Moorestown Quanta Redvale tablet, the MeeGo tablet UI looks completely different. “To say we’re impressed with the “pre-alpha” version of the software is a huge understatement.” This tablet is powered by […]

Nokia N900 Automatic Updates for all apps!?

Nokia N900 Automatic Updates for all apps!?

| December 18, 2009 | 110 Replies

With S60 if you have several apps installed, you might not know there’s a newer updated version until you try out that application again (and that’s if you’re lucky). Today, the N900 gave me a notification saying a few applications I had previously installed had some updates. I continued and the N900 proceeded to install […]

This is a quick 4 minute video to show the game “Super Tux” on the Nokia N900. This game uses the N900′s QWERTY keyboard, with arrows for navigation and predefined letters for jump/power/duck. Now, the N900 doesn’t have a D-pad like the N97, but you can change the controls so you can still have your […]

How To: Rotate to portrait to make calls on N900

In the very first view preview videos of the Nokia N900, we saw that in contrast to the landscape oriented OS, when the N900 is turned in portrait, it activates call mode. Now this is particularly helpful since the N900 doesn’t have any hardware call/end keys. At best, you have to press the power button […]

Graphics wise, whatever glitzy eye candy game you can show off on the iPhone, the N900 can do it too [and possibly look better if games will utilise the 800×480 screen of the N900 vs the Paltry 320×480 of the iPhone). Bounce Evolution was the first 3D game shown on the N900 and everyone was […]
