Nokia Booklet 3G + Ubuntu LTS 10.04 CDs arrive to Oslo
As mentioned earlier I was expecting the Nookia Booklet 3G to arrive soon for some testing (thanks to WOMWorld/Nokia) and so today was the day.
Basically its performance with Windows is not spectacular. It works and it feels ok, but is kind of slowish and the graphics are really slow (you can see windows being moved or drawn!!??)
I tried it with Ubuntu LTS 10.04 Netbook Edition and it worked almost flawlessly out of the box. The one exception is of course screen resolution. This was expected as the GMA 500 is pretty much a hellsent piece of hardware with useless software for users of newer GNU/Linux distributions as no drivers for newer Xorg is available.
Those who know me guessed it already: I am going to try until it works. And I got others with me!
I cannot let you do testing yourself with this device but if you want me to I can test things for you. If you have a benchmarking software test suite (Windows and Linux) you could recommend or something you want to know about the device I will do my best the next 2 weeks to answer your questions. Just leave a comment.
Thanks in advance!
