willing to start hearing feedback about the new model. I own an N800 and in my ignorance it gave me a hard time to tweek anything. Specially with net-tools.

how did you manage to replace the qwerty keyboard in the 810? :p

saludos,

I never had an N800 so I can't talk about it. But what keyboard are you talking about ?

Submitted by alvaro (not verified) on Sat, 20/10/2007 - 12:32am

well, I've seen the pics on 810 and looks to have a retractible keyboard instead of the onscreen keyboard on the N800. it was just a joke anyway.

Submitted by msameer on Sat, 20/10/2007 - 10:02am

Yup. It has a slide-out hardware keyboard attached and an onscreen one ;-)

Yes, but does it run Drupal?

Yup ;-)

wow!
i have n800, how could you manage to display arabic text ?
can you give us the instructions, please.

Submitted by msameer on Tue, 30/10/2007 - 3:40pm

The browser equipped with 2007 OS doesn't support Arabic unless you are using the microb browser.

2008 OS comes with microb already so it was a matter of installing the required Arabic fonts.

I didn't release the packages yet as the OS is not out yet.

I'm not sure the packages I created will install in a straightforward way on a normal consumer device (Or 2007 OS) or not.

As Arabic for input. It's not possible now (AFAICT). I've done no work yet. I still need to see if I can.

It means that you have to - unfortunately - wait for a while.

i guess i have to wait :)
i only need it primary for browsing , arabic input would be extra feature.
thanks mohd :)

Guys, get the arabic fonts for the Nokia N800 microb browser from here:

http://browser-extras.garage.maemo.org/downloads.html

Just install, reboot and enjoy!

I didn't know they released it. Did you try installing it on a device not set to R&D mode ?

Submitted by Ali (not verified) on Thu, 08/11/2007 - 7:38pm

I installed it on my Nokia N800 (OS IT2007) and after rebooting it worked like a charm. I'm browsing Al-Jazeera in Arabic now.

Can't complain now anymore. I'm a happy camper :)

BTW, the RSS reader now displays arabic letters but they are not connected together.

Submitted by msameer on Thu, 08/11/2007 - 10:31pm

I don't really know. I don't want to release anything now because the N810 is not in the market yet,
I don't want people to apply anything to the N800 and start asking me about it.

But N810 (2008 OS) + fonts + rss reader worked fine for me.

Submitted by Ali (not verified) on Thu, 08/11/2007 - 11:52pm

It's logical to wait for the official release of the N810. But for now, N800 (with OS 2007) users can use these arabic fonts (http://browser-extras.garage.maemo.org/downloads.html) with the microb browser.

We might not need any extras with the OS 2008. We'll see.

Submitted by msameer on Fri, 09/11/2007 - 12:05pm

Unfortunately, you will need the extras (Or any other font package). It was me who did the font package. That's why I know (-:

Guys, I forgot to announce my new Nokia N800 page. It contains all the steps needed to enable Arabic browsing.
