Maemo Summit - coverage from across the web

Published by Rafe Blandford at 10:19 UTC, October 20th 2009

As part of my post Maemo Summit follow up I've been keeping an eye on what people have been saying about the event in blogs and other online media. In this news story you will find twenty or so links featuring a wide range of content an opinions from across the web. For those who were unable to attend the summit it should give you a good flavour of what the event was like.

As a reminder you can read the live blog from day one, two and three of the Maemo Summit for an as-live experience.

There are also a number of discussion threads on about the summit and more information the wiki.

From across the web

Here are a selection of links from blogs and media sites, which covered the Maemo Summit. If you've written something about the event that we have missed here, please leave a link in the comments thread.

  • Chippy, from UMPC Portal, provided a number of live posts from the Maemo Summit including this one, featuring a live unboxing of the N900 and this piece on Maemo 6.
  • On of my favourite blog posts is from the Maemo DP team, in which they share the story behind getting 300 N900's ready to give away to developers. When the loaner N900 announcement got made there was quite a bit of excitement - I don't think I have ever seen so many happy geeks in one place at the same time.
