Re: skype getting video @ CITA? check link

It could be anything, though. Some odds, OTTOMH:


N810 variant with WiMAX; such as N820i - and Diablo announce - 80%
Another s/w partnership such as with Microsoft, Real or Skype - 60%

Re: The noBounds Project

Much of this smells like vapourware - or certainly something which wouldn't be useful for many of the use-cases people are imagining (watching your own videos in hotels, complex presentations etc.)

Re: Pptp Vpn?

The problem is the majority of people won't be able to control what VPN solution their employer uses.

Re: What do we know about Diablo (Maemo 4.1) ?

Interesting idea, if entirely unsubstantiated :-)

Like GeneralAntilles, I was under the impression that Chinook would be the codename for maemo 4.x, which meant Diablo would be 5.x and Elephanta...

Re: What do we know about Diablo (Maemo 4.1) ?

It seems to be 4.1.

Given the mess we had with 3.x having about twenty different codenames, the point of the bora/chinook/diablo/elephanta was to clarify the codenames within each major release.

Re: What do we know about Diablo (Maemo 4.1) ?

As tso says, Diablo will be the first version of Maemo with in-place upgrades rather than complete reflashing (or, at least, that's the plan).

It will also be Maemo 5.0, not 4.1:


4.x is...

Re: PC Pro gives the N810 3/6

I beg to differ: my Psion 5mx went for a month or two between recharges of its 2 AA batteries - and that's being used every day. But you're right: consumers nowadays have an expectation on the amount...

Re: Microsoft Silverlight Coming to the Internet Tablet

Java isn't proprietary - it's now open source. Even before then there was an open process for dealing with changes to the platform and mature re-implementations.

Re: porting Kdepimpi PIM suite to N8*0 (status, help needed)

Is the target of this a standard Hildon desktop with proper integration and looking native (possibly following on from the work on http://qt4.garage.maemo.org/ ?)

Re: Maemo is CSS contaminated (not entirely open)

Maemo is open. You have to enter your MAC address at tablets-dev.nokia.com to get a Nokia OS image, *based* upon Maemo.

I don't view Mahjongg as a priority for browsing the web, but my wife still enjoys it on her tablet.
