Upgrade to Diablo (Maemo 4.1)

Ok, you won’t believe that I haven’t upgrade my N800 to the lateast OS2008, Diablo (Maemo 4.1) until today. I even unaware it til bunny tell me few weeks ago.

2 Major things that diablo delights me are the Chinese support on RSS reader and the new mail client Modest. Ok, it also shipped with the Chinese font MHei18030C5.ttf. But I used the Chinese font provided by Google’s Android SDK which is much better then AR PL UMing since I upgrade to OS2008 beta. I have never got a problem on reading Chinese in N800. However, the broken Chinese support in RSS reader in Maemo 4.0 really make it useless for me. It is great they really fix it in Diablo. Besides, the long waiting Modest is pretty great. I had try the beta version of it last year in OS2008 beta and found it is much better then the old mail client. However the beta version didn’t integrated well with Task applet. I haven’t use the N800 to read mail since I upgrade to the official OS2008 (Maemo 4.0) coz it didn’t ship with Modest. Now, n800 can really become the Internet Tablet instead of only an E-Book reader or Podcast player for me. Wow!!!!!

GNU/Linux HSDPA (3.5G) 上網!?

早一陣子,有人問我 GNU/Linux 可不可以 HSDRA (3.5G) 上網。現在香港 HSDPA 計畫都頗貴,我沒有錢使用,所以亦答不到。不過研究一下亦無況。

Google 搜索一下,Tuxmobil 有一專頁收集了有過 GNU/Linux 3G 上網的資料。似乎上 Smartone-Vodafone 最新那個 HSDPA USB stick 有 GNU/Linux 驅動器,有 Debian、Fedora 8 和 OpenSuSE 10.3 等 distro 的套件預備。但見討論區有不少人投訴驅動器有問題。

有機會要找個有 Smartone-Vodafone USB stick 的朋友備來試試。
