The N800/N810 are highly popular Linux-based handheld Internet tablets (not
phones), mostly GTK based. Amazon named the N800 as their best selling computer
I know that there have been attempts in the past to port jpilot to the maemo
(then on the Nokia 770), which died out at some point.
There is no real comprehensive PIM suite for maemo (the linux flavour on the
N800/N810). This is based on Nokia's position that their Internet Tablets are
*not* PDAs (fair enough - they are much more than that), but that is
functionality people really need *as well*.
The N8x0s are basically ARM machines, run a debian-derived Linux flavour
(complete with apt-get!), and as can be expected, there is lots of support for
developers out there - complete with emulators, development environments,
support libraries, etc.
Sadly, I am no developer (though I wield a mean vi when creating bash scripts!
:), but I was wondering if there have been any renewed attempts at porting
jpilot to this platform?
Would certainly be a worthwhile (and attention-getting :) FOSS project for
someone looking for one!
