Back to OS 2005

Recently I decided to upgrade my Nokia 770 up to OS 2006. The procedure of upgrade is very simple. There is a Windows utility which make this procedure easily for Windows guys. But you can use flasher under Linux as well.
My first impression of OS 2006 is very positive. It looks much better than OS 2005. But the most significant change is an application installer. It works now similar to apt-get utility. So, it’ll be easy to update installed packages. Also, the application installer uses dependences for packages.
But after playing with the new OS I returned back to OS 2005. Because the OS 2006 has a new architecture – ARMEL and there is not way anymore to install Debian packages for ARM. Well, I’m going to work with OS 2005 till all packages needed for me (mainly related with SDL) will be ported to the ARMEL.

eo v7110 vs Nokia 770

I came across this post about comparison Origami UMPC eo v7110 and Linux-based Internet Tablet Nokia 770:

The Nokia 770, coupled with a Brando case and a ThinkOutside Stowaway Universal Bluetooth Keyboard is now my “go everywhere” machine. It’s always in my pocket or geek bag. It can even mount to my windshield for GPS use – something I never expect to do with my TabletKiosk eo. However, it is not the end of my portable computing needs.
The TabletKiosk eo v7110 has wholly replaced my laptop for all my mobile computing needs. Indeed, my laptop hasn’t left the desk since the eo arrived. Again, coupled with the Stowaway keyboard, I can now do all my research, reading, and writing on the road (at the local internet cafe) on my eo.
