Nokia N900 – What do you want me to test?
Ok, so I did it again. I got a Nokia N900 for testing and own amusement.
And there are lots of things I want to try:
- Spotify: got libdespotify+gspotify running, but it halts and I have not gotten it to work. I want to find a way that works for humans beings: i.e. no compiling.
- Remote connections: VNC, OpenSSH, Rdesktop and probably some other stuff like VPN, Ad-hoc WLAN, Bluetooth DUN and IR.
- Telepathy and its beauty: Everything is properly integrated (you have skype, but no skype app which is a plus)
I know that there’s a lot of people out there that want one of this fantastic devices, but you have to know what you buy, right? And what is own amusement without sharing?
So I am willing to test different hardware and software features of the N900 in the coming weeks. Please post a comment to this entry with what you want tested and a group of Redpill Linpro in Oslo and me will give it a shot.
Mind you: Most problems will get solved in a simple manner and solutions will be document in this blog. Although I might end up compiling some stuff and adding weird repositories to my sources.list I will try to get it done in a way that is easy for normal (not super/power) users to achieve the same result.
So there you go, you can know what you want before you buy.
In this way we can together explore if reality aligns with my predictions. Or not…
