Accessing the Nokia N800 camera

Linux-based Internet Tablet Nokia N800 is very popular. Even coming N810 is not going to replace it completely (I’m not talking about windows-based Origami). Using Maemo SDK it’s fairly simple develop new applications or porting existing ones. For sure to be success you need a right documentation. Following article from explains obviously how to use N800 camera API.

P. S. The easiest way IMHO to setup Maemo development environment is downloading the Maemo SDK VMware Appliance. It can be run with free VMwave Player which available for both: Linux and Windows.

MOSH Beta by Nokia

Nokia MOSH

Nokia lunched MOSH Betaa content sharing site where community members upload, distribute and manage content to be viewed and enjoyed on mobile devices. The new service is oriented on Nokia mobile devices users only (to use it you have to install a special application on the your device). So, if you’re not Nokia fan this service is definitely not for your. But if you have a Nokia770 or N800 or some other advanced mobile device from Nokia try it. Maybe you’ll find what do you really need.

P. S. Moshing is a type of dance characterized by audience members aggressively pushing or slamming into each other.

Yet another case for N800

N800 case

This is amazing! I found another case for Nokia N800. It seems that 770/N800 is really popular mobile gadget. The Proporta Nokia n800 Series Alu-Leather Case is an elegant and effective way to protect your device from undesirable influences. It features ‘Screen Saver System’ which uses a sheet of rigid, lightweight aircraft grade aluminium to line the case, protecting your delicate device screen from crushing and impact shocks. Additionally, the case can be used as a support to keep your N800 vertically.

The price of The Proporta Nokia n800 Series Alu-Leather Case is $ 34.95.

Nokia 870 spy shot


Nokia 770 is very popular now. IMHO, it’s the best product of Nokia. So, it’s reasonable that Nokia decided to release next version of Internet Tablet. The new model – Nokia 870, will have a built-in webcam, which can apparently rotate to face towards or away from the user, 180 MB internal memory and SD slot instead of RS-MMC. Internally it’ll be still 770 and it’ll run OS 2006. The new model won’t have a slide-in “dock” casing which is useless IMHO.
