We just need the hardware and a reason to do it.


The N810 video has 1,253 views in only a short space of time, I imagine a youtube video with N900 tag with get a fair number of views, and generate interest in Linuxmce.

Anyone working on Orbiter for Nokia N900?

A few days with mine and its a 'keeper', but would like to sell off at least one of my N810's,  and that means I would be an orbiter down.

you guys _really_ need to back off the faux reflectivity. it cuts down on the effective viewing distance, subtlety is the key to a good look.


any suggestions how to cut down on the reflections I get from the screen?

I forced the N810 up to max brightness and max backlight, which helped a bit.  Would backlighting the whole thing help do you think?

On that note - My N810 (and also DT360) load up and execute commands much slower than what I see in that video.  Not to hijack your thread - but, were there any modifications made to achieve that performance?  What does the wireless network setup look like?  I just have your average off-the-shelf WiFi router running as an AP with WPA-PSK - maybe I have high packet-loss, I haven't checked...

The orbiter on the N810 is the only application that I notice slows down as you load more and more applications,  my second N810 is getting too slow to use as an Orbiter now.

Try closing down a few applications on the N810,  and disable all the desktop applets.

Also look in N810 Control Panel / Memory / Virtual Tab - tick the box to extend virtual memory, and max it out at 128MB - IIRC this needs you to have a storage card inserted and available.

Wireless is wireless G to a Cisco Access Point - I do notice better throughput with the Cisco box rather than consumer kit,  but thats more for large file transfers than the orbiters.  Use the Cisco more for it being reliable and never needing to be rebooted.

My WebDT366's respond about as quick as the N810 in the video,  so maybe its your server rather than network.  Mine is pretty much unstressed as its a dedicated large server in the garage.

Maybe someone more technical can chip in with the architecture, but do you have a load of orbiters that all need to update?  I have the two N810's and two DT366's.

The point in the video where mardibloke has to touch the screen a few times to get I, Robot to play is caused by the location of the 'Play' button in that screen...its proximity to the edge of the screen makes it difficult to 'touch' accurately with a finger.

Yep, and fat fingers, and holding the video cam, and trying to do it in one take.

Enough excuses?

First draft:

Will need some feedback on what features you want shown in the video though,  happy to change anything.

Start another thread/vote for Windows Mobile 6.


Not only a 'few' Windows Mobile devices already out there, but cheap to pick up a decent Windows Mobile device second hand.  Or even pick up new Windows Mobile devices that have been out of a couple of years, cheap enough.

Generally locking of threads is a bad idea, for the points you raise.

Sure there will be the odd time you might lock a thread though.
