Skype is a service which lets you make great quality calls over the internet. Best of all, calls to friends and family who are also using Skype are completely free, almost wherever they are in the world. You can also call landlines or mobile phones virtually anywhere in the world at very cheap rates.
Work is ongoing to update the Internet Tablet OS 2007 Hacker Edition for the Nokia 770 to match as closely as possible the latest IT OS release for the N800 and fix outstanding bugs.
As before, increasingly functional updates will be available for
download and flashing by Nokia 770 owners. It is hard to predict exactly when the first update will come, but the wait is expected to be measured in weeks.
Sadly the odds of getting Skype to work with the 770 are low, as we lack working codecs for the OMAP 1710 processor. [Less]

websites and considerably improves web usability. It also improves substantially
the media performance when using video streaming services.

More music and more videos imply more memory resources. Memory card support
has increased from 2GB to up to 8GB, covering most part of the range of memory
cards available in the market nowadays.
With two memory card slots the devices memory
capability is extendable up to 16 GB.

around the wireless connection, resulting in remarkably longer online usages.
The new Internet Tablet OS brings some improvements
at an application level as well. The most visible change is clarification of
Now Playing and Library modes for Media Player. The contents of the cards are
also scanned faster than before.

software enhancements. Now the screen areas with most intensive use register
events more efficiently.

bugs.maemo.org is accessible again to anonymous users and search engine spiders. We have applied some patches to our Bugzilla and now no email address should be accessible without registering. Thanks to the bugzilla.gnome.org for sharing their
privacy tips! We found a couple more of weaknesses in the extended functionality for showing search results. If you still see email addresses where they shouldn't be, please share your findings.
Last Spring we decided to limit the access to to registered users, in order to help protecting their privacy and avoid the risk of bot spiders gathering email addresses. It was clear that the stock Bugzilla had this privacy weakness but it was brought on top of of our priorities as soon as some users reported having received spam in addresses used only in maemo's bug tracking system. Having bugs.maemo.org close to the public view has been uncomfortable but we still think it was the right thing to do.
GstOpenMAX is a collaboration among Fluendo, Nokia, STMicroelectronics, TI and the open-source community, initiated by Nokia with the goal to develop a GStreamer plugin to run OpenMAX-IL components in GNOME and GStreamer applications. The new project
aims to merge efforts from Bellagio project and GOmx project into one solid OMAX-IL plugin for GStreamer.
OpenMAX-IL is an industry standard that provides abstractions for multimedia processing implemented in hardware or software. Especially in embedded systems, there has been a strong need for a cross-platform API that improves the integration of multiple hardware-accelerated multimedia components, e.g. codecs, effects and mixers.
The GstOpenMAX plugin enables GNOME and GStreamer applications to seamlessly use OpenMAX-IL components. In addition, the project also provides the community with the possibility to develop cross-platform codecs, that would automatically be supported by GStreamer multimedia framework. [Less]
We have made a first recollection of maemo related presentations and documents. There must be more out there. We will be listing new additions coming from maemo team members as soon as we get them.
There are also presentations with a maemo focus
made by the community. We are linking to the maemo tag page in SlideShare.net as a convenient way to increase their visibility.
