Nokia N810 (IT OS2008) firmware on the N800

As detailed on CNet, the Nokia N810 firmware has been leaked and people have been trying it out on the N800.

Some of the major features of the new OS:

  • Upgrade the processor speed from 320 MHz to 400 MHz
  • Now uses Mozilla browser instead of Opera
  • Improved Flash (and hence YouTube)
  • Linux kernel upgraded from 2.6.18 to 2.6.21
  • New mapping application to go with the integrated GPS built into the N810

I have seen a mention of video support in Skype as I had predicted but I couldn’t find any reference which confirms video support.

Speaking of the Nokia N800 series, Access has released a Garnet (Palm OS) VM for Nokia N series internet tablets.

  1. Danny,
    Can you tell me if “logmein” works with the new mozilla browser. It doesn’t work for me on OS2007 with Opera.

  2. Honestly, I haven’t had a chance to run the upgrade on my tablet. Another reason being that most of the third party software isn’t available for OS2008.

    You can however test a website using the mozilla browser on OS2007. See my earlier post http://danny.damours.net/wordpress/index.php/archive/mozilla-based-browser-for-maemo-and-nokia-n800 for more details. I imagine that there is a difference between the OS2007 install and the version installed with OS2008 but the basics should all be the same.

    As soon as I upgrade, I’ll try logmein out (logmein.com, right?) and let you know.

  3. […] the N810 for sale on their website for $485 CAD. That is for those who aren’t content to run OS2008 on their N800 […]

  4. It looks like logmein has released a new browser plugin in order to allow access to logmein from a Nokia N800 / N810.
