Quote:

Dr. Ari Jaaksi has just finished his keynote speech over at OSiM, revealing a lot of juicy stuff on the future of Maemo. Check out the the upcoming Maemo 5 (5th generation) highlights:     online anywhere with cellular connectivity over HSPA for broadband anywhere     powerful computing with TI OMAP3 processor - for better performance and better graphics performance     photo sharing with hi-def camera - imaging and photo-sharing     Nokia is now Gold Sponsor of Linux Foundation, has contributed code today for 3G/HSPA cellular (data) connectivity for OMAP3 to Linux kernel     no news yet on backward compatibility on older devices

Interesting - good to see HSPA support.

Has somebody recorded the presentation?

I'm sure someone did it, however it will probably take some time to get it online.

I guess this confirms the speculation over Texrat's previous comment on being blown away by Step 5 of 5. Great news to see HSPA connectivity. I just wonder what this will do to potential N810WE sales - My guess is that people will hold off until the new Maemo device comes out

i worry what kind of effect hspa will have on price...

He announced new processor... Hope they are not going to drop support for the old ones. I am really close to buying one but if they drop support in the next months...

N96-level pricing may very well kill the platform.

Not particularly excited about the cellular stuff here.

iirc, its omap thats being used today as well. dont know how backwards compatible cortex-based is vs the current one tho...

Well, the issue is less ARM-compatibility (Cortex A8 is armv7, ARM11 is armv6, one or the other is just a recompile away—and, fwiw, Debian is armv5 and works fine on OMAP2 and OMAP3) than all the extra features that might possibly be thrown in. Interface compositing with PowerVR, a RAM boost, much faster CPU. Basically, it's a similar situation to what happened with the 770.

Nokia did promise us at least 2 rounds of support per tablet, and the N810 has only gotten one (no, the dinky little Diablo update does not count as a round). So either Nokia breaks the promise (I picture rioting here) or, as Jaffa put it "hamstrings" the backport to keep it within the OMAP2's limits.

I doubt that a radio interface will change much about the price. I don't think the WiMAX hardware in the N810WE made it much more expensive, so why should HSPA hardware change much about an "N900HE" price-wise?

I don't get the negativity regarding cellular network support on here.
