Re: [WIP] Producing Qwerty OtherHalf --order counter: 48/100

It could also serve as a good starting...

Re: Can anyone tell me what is the function of X-terminal application in N900?

X-Terminal is the main reason why I chose N900 to be my next phone over other, symbian/winmo/android-powered, smartphones. :)

Re: N900 Hardware

That would make the costs of producing a cell phone tremendously higher, with little to none benefit.

Re: N900: JTAG or serial console over USB?

With jtag over usb available, it should be possible to even wipe the device entierly (including the uboot bootloader, which is most probably used) and still recover from it, provided one had kernel...

Re: Java for Maemo 5

Java SE.
Java ME - java used in dumb-phones.
Having Jazelle supported would also be nice - it's a feature of some ARM cpus to execute java code directly (at least parts of it).

Re: multitouch on N900

How the touchpad reacts is mostly because of drivers/software. Linux drivers for synaptics touchpads can do multitouch on most of the touchpads.

Re: New shiping date is 03/11?

N900: JTAG or serial console over USB?

Does the N900 provide a JTAG or a serial console over USB?
It'd be very helpful for fixing stuff if one screws-up with partitioning the mtd device or uploading the ubifs.

Re: Did your N900 ship today continued

I have a 1.2GHz armv5tejl device that's working as my router/NAS. It's very capable i/o-wise, but as for general computing it's not that impressive.

Re: maemo 4 port to 5800

User-mode linux is just a userland process. There are no drivers in it to talk with the host hardware. Not to mention that it's *very* slow (like 10% of the native speed, or so)

Re: N900 + Stylus = Pen Tablet for Photoshop?

I think he's thinking about using the N900 as an input device.
As crazy as it may sound, that could be possible with either usbip [1] (if the touchscreen is an usb device) or a cuse [2] hack

Re: Did your N900 ship today continued

So... could it be that 22th October will be the release-date for those who pre-ordered early? That'd confirm (at least partially) the info from my source about the release date.
