Since all N900 users are well aware of Maemo’s future, most of them seem to be trying hard to port an OS that actually has a future. This time hackers tried porting Android 2.3 a.k.a. Gingerbread into the phone, and guess what…quite a few parts actually work.
Whether you would agree or not, Nokia N900 is still the most powerful mobile phone in the list of zillion phones manufactured by the Finnish giant. And most phone geeks will almost certainly agree that this particular phone is a hacker’s paradise. As if just to further prove that, a hacker tried to run Android 2.2 a.k.a. Froyo. And guess what? It runs pretty well. The hardware support was pretty neat and so was the web browsing.
Mozilla has announced that the much awaited Firefox for Mobile is finally released. Currently targeted for Nokia’s Maemo platform, all Nokia N900 users will be able to use the world’s favorite web browser. Firefox for Mobile will run exactly the same as its desktop counterpart. Features include the Awesome bar, Weave Sync, add-ons, location aware browsing, tabbed browsing and even safe browsing.
