Apple It's the most hyped device of the moment, a device that nobody has laid eyes on without an NDA death-grip. While rumour and speculation escalate (sometimes giving way to apathy), little has leaked out of Cupertino. But nobody seems to be asking whether this tablet thing will be successful or not.

And... talking about mobile phones...

Off-topic: Thom, how can I ask OSNews to have a nice review to the new Nokia N900?


<sarcasm> I don't think that is possible because it is a Nokia Internet Tablet product and Nokia hate all NIT users, as demonstrated by their attitude towasrd the N800 and N810 and upgrades paths to the latest Maemo.</sarcasm>

Once bitten, twice shy - and I will never buy or advocate buying another Nokia NIT model to anyone. The device will be obsolete in a year. Seriously.

Having read much about the new N900 I was just wondering what are the upgrade possibilities for users of older N??0 devices. So you say the folks at Nokia are making this very difficult? I'm negatively impressed here... ;)

Yeah, they made it nigh on impossible to get an official version. There is a "open source" project, but it's called something other than Maemo.. I forget the name. Basically, the N800 is apparently obsolete, as is the N810. The N800 is about 3 years old and the N810 is much less, more like 18 months. So, Apple get's flack for dropping PowerPC support after not producing a PowerPC based machine for 4 years and clearly indicating that PowerPC was a dead end - Nokia, well no, Nokia just screw their users over. Sad but true.
