Re: Dead N900 - green light only

Nah, that one doesn't work - the goat sets off the over voltage circuits. Just over it's nominal allowance.
Tried that already.
Stupid goat - blew a fuse.

Dead N900 - green light only

I managed to find a cheap N900 but it's... dead.

Re: Change in Organization, for a better project

Joerg: thought the eagles were not going to be released?
Seems a little odd. Maybe the above post should be pulled until after the project is finished or dead completely.

Re: FreeMaemo/NeoMaemo/Fremantle - New phone

Mate. Agree: If we can get a decent phone with Debian onboard, get a hildon GUI then thats perfect.
It's not maemo exactly, it's a combination of Linux, brilliant GUI and community.

Re: FreeMaemo/NeoMaemo/Fremantle - New phone

Same dude using a touch screen device.
This would make a brilliant GUI on Pandora, not a fan of Angstrom though.

Re: FreeMaemo/NeoMaemo/Fremantle - New phone

Rare, never officially released and over priced for what they are. (my opinion; but I want one!).
N950 is a single core at 1ghz; nothing special.

Edit: I don't see this idea working very well;...

Re: For Sale Nokia N950

The price seems to have dropped out of these.
The last 2 I have seen on ebay (also linked here) have sold for around $200USD.
Maybe hold it until the value jumps.

Re: Preinstalled operating system

Sounds like my old N900 back in its day! I had around 6 different OS's (including Maemo) at one stage!! Good old days!
