The new face of Nokia 770

After testing of beta version Nokia has released an OS 2006 for 770 Internet Tablet. As you can see on the picture above the desktop applets were changed. They look much better now IMHO. Other changes are:
  • VoIP capabilities
  • IM and Google Talk messaging client
  • Integrated addressbook with presence information
  • Better performance, as well as a control-panel option for setting up a swap partition on the rs-mmc card
  • Better memory recovery when applications are closed
  • Google search bar available in home screen
  • Browser URL input field has partial matching
  • Home screen items now can be rearranged
  • Thumb keyboard is “input method of choice”
  • Package manager handles package feeds, and allows custom menu placement
The Tablet OS 2006 upgrade apparently completely wipes out all Tablet OS 2005 applications. Specifically, the Nokia 770 upgrade page states, “Installed applications designed for OS 2005 will not be compatible with OS 2006 edition and will not be restored even from backup.” It’s not good for me because my Nokia 770 includes a bunch of useful applications and Plutohome Orbiter for using with next release – 2.0.40. Where is apt-get?
Anyway, if you are Nokia 770 Internet Tablet owner and you want to test new functionality you can download Tablet OS 2006 here.
