Running the full version of Mac OS X 10.3 (powerpc) on the Nokia N900 smartphone! Correct me if I’m wrong, but this makes the Nokia N900 the first mobile phone EVER to run the full version of Mac OS X! I am using the pearpc emulator that I compiled for Maemo 5 in Scratchbox. As you can see, it is VERY slow – it took over 1,5 hours to reach the “About this mac” dialog screen. The video has been heavily clipped to remove the long periods of absolutely nothing seemingly happening – so keep your eye on the clock to keep your sense of time Come visit my blog at www.tuug.fi for more info about my emulation and N900 related hacks!
Firefox Mobile crawled into its first pockets last night, going live on Maemo5. The mobile version retains the full awesomeness of the Awesome Bar and includes WeaveSync for keeping tabs, passwords and bookmarks straight across desktop and mobile versions.
After a series of preview releases, the Mozilla Foundation has released a formal version of its mobile web browser for Nokia’s Maemo platform.
