VR-1 No, it is not professional camera or imaging tech alone that we will see being introduced on July 28 during Nokia’s event. If a tip from one of our trusted sources has to be believed we will see unveil of “Virtual Reality” device that Nokia has been working on and we have exclusively reported about it in past. That’s why we had included VR devices as one of the probable announcements while reporting about the July 28 event. If the tip has to be believed, Nokia may also announce companion VR apps on iOS, Android and Windows.

More info about the Nokia Virtual Reality device project,

The VR project is product of “Presence Capture program” in Nokia Technologies. Nokia has been working on developing 3D video and audio solutions to transmit 3D presence in Virtual Reality. The device will be based on Nokia’s homegrown Linux-Based cloud OS and will employ cross-platform app development platform Qt for companion applications on iOS, Android and Windows. Yes VR apps based on Qt. Nokia is back to roots.

We have earlier posted about many Nokia patents related to wearable glass and eye movement based interactions. A job posting had already revealed that Nokia was indeed working on a cloud-powered OS based on Linux.

If you format your post with quote tags or something equivalent -- not just a link to the source at the end -- you'll attract fewer angry replies accusing you of mechanically copy-pasting stuff from around the web. Maybe throw in your own analysis or interpretation just to add that "human touch."

"If the tip has to be believed, Nokia may also announce companion VR apps on iOS, Android and Windows."

I found this website intriguing - there is actually NO SOLID REFERENCE AT ALL in most of their articles.

I'm not surprised if Nokia poweruser "announce" Nokia may Launching Maemo, MeeGo, Sailfish, Acquire Jolla, Making QWERTY device, revive N9 design... Etc in foreseeable future.

Honestly, Mr. Foxkia, I've gotta ask: why should anyone on the Maemo forum board care in the least about a potential tip about a possible upcoming product completely unrelated to Maemo, from a company that has irrevocably cut all ties to Maemo?

I understand someone having nostalgia about the people who brought us the N900 and the N9, but the vast majority of those people no longer work at Nokia. (And, given the recent layoffs, they no longer work at Microsoft either.) I really don't see any reason to bother keeping track of every little thing the company currently called "Nokia" does...

They might make something like this, but they'd be behind HTC, Samsung and of course Facebook and Microsoft in this endeavor.

Can't say this is a shrewd move.

Er, but did either of these two guys have anything to do with Maemo or Meego?

(BTW, it looks like Hans Peter Brondmo left Nokia back in February, from his LinkedIn page.)

Yes, he was involved in the design of the N9. So, let me ask again: did Axel have anything to do with Meego? I don't really care about someone who can create an Android device that looks like an N9; I'd be much more interested in someone who can create a Meego device, regardless of its shape...
