Nokia and Gnome

by Miguel de Icaza

The big news of the day is that Nokia has released their internet tablet. Effectively a tiny handheld computer based on Linux, Gtk+, an Opera/Gtk+ and GStreamer (I previously stated that they used WebCore/Gtk+, but I was wrong).

The developer site is very interesting:

This is the first mass-market use of Gnome technologies, this is *very* exciting.

Of course, its only missing Mono for extended productivity.
