Symbian closing web - removing source code

  View Printable Version 
Psion PDAThis just in: Symbian (more info on Wikipedia: Symbian) is closing down web sites, including the ones hosting source code, kits, wiki, bug database, documentation etc. So Symbian has been open source for about two years, and the source code has been available just about one year. Perhaps some projects are not meant to survive.

EPOC upgrades and Norwegian keyboards

  View Printable Version 
Psion PDA

By Tor Willy Austerslått

As you already know, PsionTeklogix have upgraded the EPOC OS to support Ethernet, GPRS, ISDN, WLAN and whatnot. There is an earlier story here on that.

What you might not know is that as soon as you load your Norwegian netBook up with any of the downloadable OS upgrades, your keyboard magically turns into a UK one (or whatever language version you downloaded). That's right; most of the special keys with national characters (, , ), semicolon, comma, tilde and so forth are all in the wrong places or missing. The reason is simply that the UK, German, Spanish, French and US upgrades do not care about your Norwegian keyboard. Also, EPOC has no way of defining keyboard layouts in the control panel, and since the keyboard was my main reason for upgrading from a 5mx to a netBook in the first place, I found this quite a sour deal.

If you don't want to type using ctrl-sequences (and you probably won't), here's what you do:

Symbian goes open source - sort of

  View Printable Version 
Psion PDASymbian, makers of the operating system found in gadgets like the Psion PDAs, Nokia 7650 and 9210, Sony Ericsson P800 and a lot of other machinery, announced that they will open up most of the source to third party software and hardware developers under something called the "Symbian Platinum Program". Not a bad idea, considering the amount of guessing and hacking around that has to be done when writing useful software for e.g. EPOC.

Will we finally be able to plug stuff into our netBooks now?

Fill your PDA up with docs and info

Psion PDATomeraidIt is a Tomeraider pre-processor (which is available for all main PDA platforms).

It recursively parses directories, stripping out redundant tags from HTML files - reformatting them to create an output file is easily imported into Tomeraider. Raw text is kept intact, so too are Hyperlinks, bold, italic and underline formatting plus horizontal rules and bullet points.

Get the windows trial version of Tomeraidit and try it out yourself!

MP3 player for EPOC32

  View Printable Version 
Psion PDAWhile the internal speaker in the Psion range of PDA's might not be your favourite choice of party background noise, Alexander Zavorine have gone and done an MP3 player for EPOC/Symbian nevertheless. It's version 1.12 and fresh out of beta. The player works on ER5 and some ER3 machines, meaning Series 3c, 3mx, 5, 5mx, Revo, Series 7 and netBook.

Is this the EPOC high-impress-factor killer app?

Dismantling the Psion Series 5mx

  View Printable Version 
Psion PDAThe day has come, and your Psion Series 5 or 5mx is no longer covered by the warranty. Your stylus is stuck, and something rattles inside. Or maybe the flat cable connecting the screen and the keyboard has died on you? It's time for some garage style do-it-yourself. But how do you even open the thing? Are there any screws, and if there's anything to be screwed, where are they? pda-portal.com takes it step by step, illustrated like a regular Spiderman comic.

Check out the whole site, your PDA would love you to.
