OS2008 SSLLLLOOOOOWWWW Downloads

I finally got a N800 today and the first thing that any self-respecting geek would do is download the latest software and, coincidentally, OS2008 is out today too. So I headed over to http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/ and tried to download it. 45 minutes of ‘connection time outs’ and errors later I got a directory listing of all the files I could download. A further 15 minutes of trying and failing to download the correct file (timeouts again) I finally got a save dialogue.

OS2008 is now downloading at 4.5k/s but I’m sure its worth it.

This just goes to show either a) how popular the Nokia n800 is or b) how inadequate http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/ is. Lets hope its the former.
