Nokia’s latest offering stands out in the smartphone market for all the right reasons: Linux-based Maemo OS, PC-like performance and extensive customisation options. OK, so it’s got pretty decent guts, but what about the rest?
We don’t see or hear nearly enough of it, but the Maemo smartphone platform is powerful, open source and performs on the Nokia N900 on a level that’s comparable to the experience you get with a desktop computer.
You've made a PS3 controller out of a Nokia N900, but all you really want is to use a Sixaxis controller to play emulated games on the device. Thanks to these instructions, now you finally can.
Though it's only a proof of concept for now, this clip shows the hack-friendly Nokia N900 dual-booting Maemo and Android. It's just a taste, but as Brandon says, "its real and it could be spectacular."
