| Previously thought of as a considerable operating system overhaul,



Nokia embraces Ubuntu OS

| Nokia’s Internet Tablet devices are set to get a port of the Linux operating
| system Ubuntu, following the release of the latest ‘Hardy Heron’ v8.04 of
| Ubuntu this week. *

| The announcement, first posted on Apr. 15, may be available here, with a
| Google cache here. Meanwhile, a community developer has already managed to
| port KDE to Nokia N8xx tablets. And, Nokia is actively porting Ubuntu to ARM.
| All in all, it looks like device and desktop software will continue to
| converge.


Ubuntu Coming to Nokia N800-Series Internet Tablets

| The Nokia N800 and N810 Internet Tablets are wonderful little devices,
| because they give you virtually the same online experience as a laptop but in
| a much smaller form factor. The operating system on these handhelds, however,
| is starting to get a little dated. We already know that Nokia isn't going to
| make the leap to Windows Mobile or OS X, so it's time to turn over to Linux.


Nokia Calls for Openness

,----[ Quote ]
| Speaking as the lunch keynote at The Mobile Future, a day-long conference
| sponsored by Carnegie Mellon and the University of California at Berkeley ,
| Iannucci laid out his thoughts on how his industry has to change in order to
| spur the next generation of mobile demand. *
| Openness, of course, refers to having standard platforms that applications
| developers can work on; the Android platform from Google would be one
| example. (See Now Wait for Android.) *
| [...]
| But openness is going to be necessary, because it's the mobile industry's
| best shot at discovering the applications that will drive the next wave of
| wireless demand. The agony of debugging an application across a couple dozen
| phone models is enough to scare away would-be developers, Iannucci said. *


Qt to be supported in addition to GTK+

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia will introduce Qt to the maemo platform in addition to GTK+. The plan
| is in the earliest stage and recruitment offers for Qt/C++ developers will
| pop up soon. Don't expect any Qt application developed by Nokia for the
| tablets anytime soon, though. The first actual step will be the distribution
| of the Qt libraries for application development in maemo.org during 4Q2008.
