We threw out a quiz on Twitter yesterday. The question was:
What was the first Maemo-powered device from Nokia?
Lots of tweeps who responded said it was the N900. However the N900 was the 4th Maemo device. The up-to-date list of Maemo devices is here:
- Nokia 770 (Maemo 1, updated to 2)
- Nokia N800 (Maemo 3)
- Nokia N810 (Maemo 4)
- Nokia N900 (Maemo 5/Fremantle)
- Nokia N950 (Maemo 6/Harmattan, branded as MeeGo)
- Nokia N9 (Maemo 6/Harmattan, branded as MeeGo)
Yes; the N950 and N9 are not really MeeGo. They run Maemo 6, but branded as MeeGo.
The 770 was an internet tablet released in November 2005 running a 252 MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 1710 CPU. It had no GSM radio, and had Opera web bowser bundled with it.
The display was a 4.1-inch 65,536 color looker back then, and had a resolution of 800×480 pixels at 225 pixels per inch.
The first correct answer was from Spacyzuma:
