N900

My love for my phone resurfaced, when I had to flash it today (due to a reason outside of the context of this post). Anyway, in my quest for restoring whatever I had lost — applications mostly¬† — came across ‘Humanity theme’ (of Ubuntu fame) and decided to give it a go. The result is what you see in this image. I loved it instantly!

¬†Yes, in this age of Ice-cream Sandwiches, Honeycombs and iOSx’s — I am still fond of my phone. (This is in spite of the fact that Nokia abandoned Maemo.)

A few days ago, got the Python book I had been wanting. Being a fan of the Head First series, I started liking it even before I had got my hands on it. Prejudice, they call it.
Anyway, the reviews indicate that it’s ‘good for beginners’. So I might start off here itself.

Tried out Meego, or rather, I should be saying, tried out the ‘Meego port for N900‘ yesterday. Not a very pleasant experience. Not that I wasn’t prepared for a lot of loose-ends, due to the fact that it’s an Alpha release. But still, I’m not calling it ‘unpleasant’ only because of the look at feel. The device became quite slow and unresponsive as well. Thankfully, the good people working on the port had described the way to remove it.

I then thought of trying out NITDroid; and to my surprise — I loved it! The developers have done an excellent job at creating an Android port for N900. I don’t mind ignoring a lot of features ranging from ‘nice-to-have’ to ‘hello-you-call-this-a-phone?’. But what the heck! I got a working Android device with little effort. And yes, ‘I’m lovin’ it’.
