Nokia N95 as orbiter?
« on: November 09, 2007, 10:42:23 pm »
Is anyone using the Nokia N95 (8GB) as a remote orbiter?

Its a symbian 60, but doesn't seem to want to install the orbiter software!

Unfortunately, porting to series 60 v3 is more difficult, as it's not binary compatible with software written for v2.  This has not been done yet.

Cheers for the reply!
Just have to sit and wait for support I guess.

There is a total break down between 2nd and 3rd edition bytecode for Symbian Series 60.

One easy solution would be to use Python for S60, but it will then be limited to S60 so forget UIQ.

I strongly recommend you guys to switch the mobile development to Mobile Java.

I love myself better the Symbian C++ application since they are faster than Java ones. But maintaining applications for Symbian 3rd edition in at the moment a royal pain in the ass. Making application to work on 2nd and 3rd edition is difficult and time consuming. The 3rd edition security introduced more work and you have to send your application to testing + pay to sign and distribute them. The new 3rd edition release will have the capabilities changed... And I skip the details :)

A good mobile Java application would be much more portable and would save you lots of development time.

Cheers,

I think somebody was interested in building a java mobile orbiter, but unfortunately I wouldn't be surprised if they got frustrated with the lack of information and support available.  :-\

There should be a thread in the develope's section about it.

Hi!
Does anybody know when they are going to update this so that it will support S603rd?

Thanks!
