Thoughts from Jamie Bennett

The future of Maemo

Wow, just got back from recording Ari Jaaksi’s keynote speech at OSiM and he managed to drop a couple of bombs including:

  • Maemo 5 will have an OMAP3 based CPU (no surprise there).
  • It will have high definition camera support but no mention on whether this is video or stills.
  • HSPA support built in!
  • More emphasis on multi-media content.
  • More storage space (figures talked about in terms of gigabytes).

    More information will be made available at the developer session tomorrow and over the course of the Maemo Summit on Friday and Saturday.

    On another positive note, Nokia dumped a whole lot of patches to the Linux kernel early today to enable HSPA support on OMAP3 processors. Well done Nokia.
