The second installment in my continuing saga of trying to get Linux on Nokia’s freedom-hating netbook. Today’s post: A win for Wubi…
Nokia’s Booklet 3G takes the lowly netbook to new levels of sophistication with (among other things) an aluminum chassis, HDMI port and SIM card slot.
Unfortunately, it runs Windows.
Here’s a video record of the the theme effects I demoed on my hacked Nokia N97. It was streamed live using USTREAM at 2pm ET on Monday, January 25th, 2010. And there’s no audio for some reason.
Now that I’ve asked my questions in the virtual press conference and had some time to reflect on the answers, I’m ready to deliver my verdict on the Ovi Maps navigation free-for-all.
It’s a big news day for Nokia — they’ve announced that turn-by-turn directions is to be made free worldwide on Ovi Maps, their mapping app for S60 and Maemo devices. I’ve been invited to a virtual Q&A regarding the announcement, and in the spirit of sharing I’m inviting you to join in too!
