Nokia N97 Mobile Computer to Begin Selling Worldwide in June

The highly anticipated Nokia N97, Nokia’s flagship mobile computer, will begin selling in June in more than 75 countries. Along with a tilting 3.5″ touch display, QWERTY keyboard and a fully customizable home screen, the Nokia N97 will offer instant access to the full range of Ovi services.

“The Nokia N97 is an important step towards our vision of delivering a highly personalized Internet experience,” said Jonas Geust, Vice President and head of Nokia Nseries. “Fuelled by a multitude of music, maps, games, media and applications via Ovi, the Nokia N97 transforms the Internet into an experience that’s completely tailored to the tastes and interests of its owner.”

The Nokia N97 is Nokia’s first device to feature a personalizable home screen, which can be customized with a range of widgets which bring live information directly to the device. These widgets include key social networking destinations like Facebook and Hi5, news services like the Associated Press, Bloomberg and Reuters, as well as shopping and weather information. The Nokia N97 is the first device to ship with the Ovi Store, which offers easy access to applications, games, videos, podcasts, productivity tools, web and location-based services, and much more. Ovi Store has paid and free content from a range of global and local content providers and developers, including Paramount Pictures, Facebook and Qik, as well as a selection of Twitter applications.

Enjoy your upgrades

The beauty of this Nokia device is that taking it out of the box is just the beginning. As with any computer, people can constantly improve and refresh their Nokia N97 with new features, functions and fixes so they can do even more with the device. An exciting roadmap of new features and functions is planned to roll out in the second half of 2009.

Entertainment ensured

The Nokia N97 also has direct access to the huge catalogue of music in the Nokia Music Store. With multiple high-speed connectivity options and 32GB of storage (up to 48GB using a microSD card) it is possible to directly download and store tens of thousands of songs on the handset. And you can listen to your favourite music on the Nokia Bluetooth Stereo Headset BH-905, which Nokia also launched today. This headset brings crystal clear sound, eliminates background noise, and is the ideal accessory for listening to music and making calls on the Nokia N97, as well as being compatible with a diverse range of other mobile and music devices.

High-quality images and video clips at 30 frames per second (fps) can be captured using the 5 megapixel camera with integrated Carl Zeiss optics. Images can also be geo-tagged to specific locations and shared instantly with friends or uploaded online via Ovi Share, Twitter or Flickr.

Dutch firm Nexus Technology enters the market for laptop accessories with a unique and patented liquid cooling solution. The TDD-9000 is a soft black velvet blanket with inside a gel-like liquid. The patented liquid has unique heat dissipating characteristics and works completely passive and noiseless.

“When you put the laptop cooling pad on your lap you will feel your lap turn colder within 10 seconds,” says Michael van der Jagt, CEO of Nexus Technology. The Taiwanese testing institute SGS Taiwan has done independent tests that support these claims. Their tests with a laptop of their choice show significant improvement in temperatures of the laptop’s components, with improvements up to 17degreesC.

SGS showed that their turned-on laptop reaches a temperature of 50degreesC after 40 minutes on a regular surface, while on the TDD-9000 it reaches only 36degreesC in 40 minutes. You can re-boost the cooling performance of the cooling pad by simply lifting it up and shake it every 20 minutes for optimal cooling.

The TDD-9000 liquid laptop cooling pad is a true portable solution. The cooling pad can be folded and easily carried with the laptop without the danger of scratching the laptop. It can be used anytime anywhere: in a train, in a plane, at home on the sofa… you will never have an uncomfortable warm lap due to your annoying hot laptop.

The Nexus TDD-9000 liquid cooling pad will be available from mid-June 2009 and will be in stores for USD 23.00. More information can be found on

This unique laptop cooling device deserves a good availability in the market worldwide and therefore Nexus is welcoming new distributors and retailers.

Eliminate risks and quickly build your custom embedded Linux based product

Timesys Corporation, provider of LinuxLink, the first commercial software development framework for building custom embedded Linux based products, announced support for Texas Instruments’ DaVinci(TM) DM6446 and DM355 processors. With support for DaVinci reference board device drivers including Ethernet, Serial, LCD display, Audio, USB and more, LinuxLink customers can easily leverage DaVinci’s unique features and achieve a fast Linux product design and implementation cycle.

DaVinci users will benefit from the LinuxLink framework which features an award-winning build system (called Factory) that provides both the easy-to-use wizard for creating an initial Linux starting image and a build engine that enables customers to design and build a completely custom and highly optimized Linux platform from source code.

“The DaVinci DM6446 and DM355 processors are widely used for embedded products,” said Charlie Ashton, Vice President of Business Development at Timesys. “We are excited to enable support for these platforms with our award-winning build system that accelerates the development of high-quality Linux products.”

LinuxLink has been adopted by customers worldwide and is attractively priced. The framework supports software engineering teams throughout their entire embedded product development process, including custom platform assembly, application development and final system integration.

LinuxLink customers benefit from the latest code from processor vendors as well as from the open source community. The Factory wizard allows customers to choose from the latest GNU-based optimized toolchains enabled with uClibc and glibc libraries. The framework allows for creation of a footprint-optimized root filesystem (RFS) with application-specific features selected from hundreds of available software packages. Package categories include multimedia, networking, storage, security, industrial and more.

For maximum flexibility, developers benefit from both the online build system and the desktop-hosted version. With either interface, customers leverage the best Linux code from Texas Instruments and the open source community. The desktop version offers more flexibility than any other Linux build platform by allowing users to integrate third-party packages and proprietary software. LinuxLink’s update service automatically notifies customers of changes to any of the components used in their project.

LinuxLink comes with commonly used development tools, including, but not limited to GDB, OProfile and mpatrol. These tools help customers ensure the quality of their final product. Customers receive technical support from expert Timesys engineers and have access to a vast suite of documentation.

For a limited time, developers can obtain free LinuxLink access to quickly configure, build and evaluate embedded Linux on Texas Instruments’ DaVinci processors by registering at Developers should enter promotion code TI6446 when completing the online free trial registration form.
