Nokia N9 Announced: Packs MeeGo, 8 Megapixel Camera, and Swiping

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything really worthwhile on this blog. Then again, it’s been a long time since there’s been any worthwhile Nokia news. And so, after a four-month hiatus, it’s time again to look at one of Nokia’s latest phones: the oft-rumored N9.


PSFreedom Released for N900: Simplifying the PS3 Hacking Process

If you’ve been following the release of the PS Jailbreak USB dongle (and subsequent downfall of Sony’s Playstation 3 console), then there’s a good chance that you’ve heard that an N900 can work just as well as the PSJB.

Deal: Nokia N900 for $369 Shipped at Dell

Dell, it seems, is doing a slam-bang job of clearancing out Nokia phones. The latest deal is the absolute cheapest price that I’ve ever seen on a Nokia N900: $369 with free 3-5 day shipping.

Nokia N900 Gets New Firmware, Video Calling, Portrait Browsing

It’s been a while since my last post. This is mostly due to a nice, long three-week vacation in Japan which I’ll be writing about soon. Anyway, I arrived yesterday to the welcome news that PR1.2 was finally let out of the bag and released to the masses. The new firmware brings Skype/GTalk video calling, [...]

Is Voice Navigation Coming Soon to the N900?

A user on the maemo.org forums recently spotted a newspaper clipping advertising, of all things, “free voice-guided navigation for Nokia N900, E72, X6, N97. FOREVER!” (emphasis mine) Was it real, fake, or just mistaken?

Playing PSX Games on the N900, Verdict: Better Luck Next Time

If you’ve been following the repositories (specifically extras-dev), you might have noticed two new additions to the Games category: PCSX and PSX4All. Both are Playstation 1 (PSX) emulators with the ability to run PSX CD images from the comfort of your N900. Unfortunately, I couldn’t download PSX4All thanks to some missing libraries, so the following [...]

Purported N900 PR1.2 Update Changelog Hits the Web

Everyone knows that the Nokia N900 PR1.2 update is coming soon. But no one knows what has actually been fixed. Until now. Maemo Briefs has released what it claims is the PR1.2 changelog – and it’s no small list. And no, there’s no MMS, Ovi Navigation, voice dialing, or portrait mode additions on the list. [...]


Revisiting the Nokia N900, Two Months Later

Five Games Actually Worth Playing on the N900

The N900 hasn’t exactly been a gaming powerhouse – just check out the Ovi Store, where there’s a total of ten games for download. That number includes both free and paid, and doesn’t look likely to change any time in the future. Fortunately, there’s some decent games to be had in the repositories, even though [...]
