Support for .deb installation in the File Manager
The previous firmware update took away the Red Pill Mode, which was used by many people to install standalone .deb files. Since then, people had to use X Terminal and dpkg for it, which wasn't really suitable (and safe) for novice users as it required root access.

Yesterday's firmware update brings back support for installing standalone .deb files from the GUI level, and this time even simpler than it was using the Red Pill Mode. Currently, all you need to do is to simply tap a .deb file in the File Manager, which will automatically launch the Application Manager and start the installation.

Firmware update 3.2010.02.08 (PR1.1.1) for the N900 now available
Another firmware update (version 3.2010.02.08, PR 1.1.1) for the N900 has just been made available both via the Application Manager and the NSU. Firmware image is also available for download from here and can be used to flash the phone using the Maemo Flasher too. The NSU update is about 172 MB while the OTA update is just 16.8 MB.

This update seems to be a minor one, with no detailed changelog available at the moment. It adds a number of new regions/countries missing from previous releases and prepares the N900 for major PR 1.2 update to be releases somewhere in the near future.

If you have any comments, questions or have found new features or improvements, please share them with us in this firmware thread on our Maemo Discussion Forum.

EDIT: Some more detailed changelogs start appearing and list the following changes and improvements:

* OpenGL ES 1.1 API libraries added
* Support for OVI Store paid content distribution
* Support for 40 new countries
* WLAN bugs mostly fixed
* Set of browser related error fixes.

Maemo no more... It's MeeGo now
While it wasn't clear yesterday when cooperation with Intel and transition into MeeGo has been announced, it has just been confirmed that that the Maemo brand will NOT be used for the upcoming platform releases. There will NOT be Maemo 6, there will be MeeGo. What does it actually mean? For end users, actually nothing but a new name. For developers, not much new, either. It'll be the same Qt 4.6 based platform as it was going to be.

While all the new possibilities resulting from the cooperation with Intel and 'unification' with Moblin are really exciting, it's just a little bit disappointing that the time, money and efforts sacrificed over the last 6 months on promoting the Maemo brand will now (at least partially) get wasted. And not just the 'official' resources but also e.g. dozens of websites like this one, Internet domains, Tweeter accounts/user names, and so on, everything will have to be rebranded and relaunched. What a waste.

But what can we do... It's time for My-MeeGo. The domain is already there and rebranding will follow soon....

MeeGo: Maemo and Moblin join forces
Nokia and Intel announced today that Maemo and Moblin (Intel's Linux platform known from netbooks) will be merged to create MeeGo, a Linux-based software platform that will support multiple hardware architectures across the broadest range of device segments, including pocketable mobile computers, netbooks, tablets, mediaphones, connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment systems.

MeeGo offers the Qt application development environment, and builds on the capabilities of the Moblin core operating system and reference user experiences. Using Qt, developers can write once to create applications for a variety of devices and platforms, and market them through Nokia's Ovi Store and Intel AppUpSM Center.

MeeGo will be hosted by the Linux Foundation and governed using the best practices of the open source development model. Nokia and Intel expect MeeGo to be adopted widely by global device manufacturers, network operators, semiconductor companies, software vendors and developers.

The first release of MeeGo is expected in the second quarter of 2010 with devices launching later in the year. It is not yet clear what will be the naming convention of future Nokia devices: just MeeGo, Maemo MeeGo, Maemo 6, etc.

More information:, MeeGo Wiki, MeeGo Architecture, Nokia Press release, Ari Jaaksi's (Head of Maemo at Nokia) blog post.
