Updating n800

It includes FM and Internet radio, an RSS news reader, image viewer and a media player for audio and video files.Note that the USB port uses a mini-B socket instead of mini-AB so that a specially grounded adaptor is required to make full use of the USB OTG client/host auto-switching.Switching can be done in software with regular adaptors, though.USB OTG only provides 100 m A of current (versus full-size USB's 500 m A), so devices with larger current requirements will need to be used with a powered USB hub.This is in contrast to previously where tablet users had to navigate through Nokia’s site to find OS updates.By having this new update capability on the mobile devices, Nokia intends to release smaller, more focused updates on a more regular basis.Most of my previously installed packages in OS2007 are already available for OS2008.

The N800 was developed as the successor to the Nokia 770.It has support for multiple accounts and built in support for some webmail sites.Modest is also designed to be a compact and fast mail client even reportedly being faster than Gmail’s web interface.I know people even managed to run KDE on it, but is it fast enough to be usable? The tips needed to get ssh root access working again mainly came from here.Lately I’ve been using it just as a music player and rarely for quick note taking or Skype over Wi Fi.So thanks to the efforts of the Nitdroid project, I installed an Android 1.6 Donut build on my N810, hoping to get something fun to tinker with.Unfortunately, the Mer project, which aimed to bring as much Fremantle as possible to the N810, was cancelled back in 2009, leaving N810 owners with a nice piece of hardware and a dead software stack.Don’t get me wrong: while the browser is still slow as molasses and the battery drains quite quickly when Wi Fi is on, Maemo Diablo works, but it’s not moving and in 2011 it’s not fun any more.I’ll have to dig in a bit deeper and use Modest a lot more before making any judgements on it.The Nokia N800 Internet tablet is a wireless Internet appliance from Nokia, originally announced at the Las Vegas CES 2007 Summit in January 2007.
