n900 has arrived

Forgot to blog about this, but my N900 that I have won has arrived a couple of weeks ago.

My impressions about it are mixed - I wouldn't recommend the phone to an normal user, but I am happy I have it.

Strange, isn't it?

I dislike it because it feels unpolished (the same goes for many of the apps I have found for it till now), as not everything works out of the box or is finely integrated.

On the other hand, I love it for the potential it has and I hardly wait to settle after moving to my next job in France and start hacking it.

Now I have my own embedded GNU/Linux in my pocket, that I can program in whatever programming language I want, be it C, C++, Python, with GTK+, QT4 or QML, and that I don't have to jailbreak. Probably even install MeeGo and Android on it.

Super!

ambassador

From now on I will kindly ask you to call me "Your Excellency!". This is because I have been approved as an Qt4 ambassador :-)

So, as a good ambassador, I kindly invite you to visit Qt4 site and learn more about it if you haven't done that already.
