Nokia N810 with Java

At long last, after countless issue with Parcel Force i received my N810. I had been without one since selling the N800, but the wait was worthwhile. Its screen and keyboard are excellent and the battery life is as good as ever. The new interface is slick and a joy to use. My only issues are that the internal GPS is just too weak, in the manual it says something like ‘ works best in blue sky’ (it’s not kidding and i will be sticking to my Tom Tom for in car navigation) and the email client is poor (but can be rectified by downloading and installing Modest). The thing i’m most happy about is the ease with which you can install Java, just follow the simple instructions posted on Jayson Falkners Blog and your ready to deploy standard application, rather than just running applets.

  1. Shame on Nokia for selling their sould to Microsoft and embracing Silverlight. They should have embraced Java and Java FX for the devices!! What were they thinking????


  2. I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!

  3. I may be wrong, but i do not believe it can, unless in the browser. Although, its normally not that hard to convert and applet to an application. However you would need to take into account the supported packages.
