PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A few months ago Nokia released the third iteration of their Internet Tablet N-series, the N810. This model has some new hardware characteristics, and a brand new version of the Maemo interface. Update: I designed a clean background for you, to be used with the "Echo" theme. Download it here, check out how it looks like here.

"I really hope Nokia will push Qtopia .. even on the N810.


I wouldn't bet on it, at least not for the time being. I had the opportunity to attend a business meeting with the N810 product manager over at Nokia just a few days after their purchase of Trolltech, and according to him, they had no plans regarding Qtopia and N810.

Just because someone at Nokia said they have "no plans" to use Qtopia, doesn't mean they aren't looking into it. Plans change.

Well, I did write "for the time being", didn't I? Of course plans changes, but you will probably not see any news regarding Qtopia on the N810 for another few months. That said, having Qtopia running on the N810 would be truly great.

Why would qtopia be a good idea? I had a zaurus sl5500 before my N800, and it was a lot more limited. I tried the qtopia 2 image provided by Trolltech, and it was okay, but it had a different abi and zero apps ran on it. Opie etc are *not* qtopia and their apps use a different abi to the qtopiia 1.x line. Qtopia is fragmented and stagnated!!! Legacy apps (qtopia 1.x) require a gcc 2.9x compiler. Bad idea. Then of course Opie uses 3.x iirc, so a lot better off - but out of Trolltech's remit. Not sure what the Trolltech qtopia 2.x uses, but without apps, does it really matter?

Trolltech has ready released Qtopia source that allows Qtopia on the Nokia tablets.
