One million downloads a day. That's the popularity of the Ovi Store, reports ME News from a Nokia round-table this week. Although still in its first iteration, with a new version of the store due early in 2010, and many will comment that ring-tones and wallpapers as well as applications will be included in that number, it's a significant number.

China Telecom develop first 3G Maemo tablet not made by Nokia

Maemo is mostly an open source platform and that means that anyone can use most of it on their own products, which means Maemo isn't just restricted to Nokia products. As part of a product range called Optima, China Telecom has developed a pocket computer with integrated 3G (CDMA2000 so it won't work in Europe or America) and Wi-Fi with a 4.3 inch screen and 2600 mAh battery. The specs sound good but compatibility issues not to say language issues mean that it almost certainly won't be available outside China. Video and images below.
