Nokia 770 Software

Jan 16, 2007 by glennji

I bought a Nokia 770 web-tablet a few months back, and absolutely love it — it’s newspaper, TV-guide, SSH client, instant messenger, VOIP handset, daily planner and notepad. I tend to take it everywhere, but it is probably most useful in the lounge room in that it removes the need for a precariously knee-perched laptop and the mass of cables that goes with it.

I’ve got a few themes, but I’ve not yet found one that is based on the lovely Gnome Desktop. There”s a nice little Java application that can quickly build Nokia 770 themes, so I”ve got no excuse really.

There”s also a bunch of software (including games) that I’d like for the Nokia, and it doesn’t look like anyone else is going to do it for me! I’ve tried installing the devkit a little while ago, but it”s all changed now so I’ll have to start again.

I”m also gradually learning Python, since that”s quite a powerful platform on the Nokia (and Gnome in general).

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
