Welcome to All About Maemo (AAM)

Published by Rafe Blandford at 14:23 UTC, October 5th 2009

Welcome to All About Maemo (AAM), an independent, online source for news and information about the Maemo platform and Maemo devices, such as Nokia's recently announced N900. Our aim is to inform, educate and entertain, through the provision of unique content, from a team of experienced and knowledgeable writers. We hope to deliver a range of objective content targeted at a wide audience, from consumers to developers and those in the mobile industry.

We're soft launching AAM (in beta if you prefer), ahead of the upcoming Maemo Summit in Amsterdam and the market release of the N900, and we want to hear your feedback. Read on for more details.

Soft launching / beta

We're soft launching All About Maemo, or, put another way, launching the site in beta, to reflect the fact that we're still evolving the content, design and make up of the site. However with the Maemo Summit this week and the market release of the first Maemo 5 device, the N900, just weeks away, we also wanted to start providing news, links of interest, opinion and analysis.

Currently we have news and features sections, but we will, over time, be adding further sections, such as reviews. 


We want your feedback!

All About Maemo is a young site and we would like to hear your feedback, comments and opinions on what you think we should be doing, or how we can improve. You can add your comments at the end of this page, or email us directly.

Alternatively you can talk to us at the upcoming Maemo Summit (Friday, October 9th to Sunday 11th). Rafe will be at the summit, where he'll be reporting for All About Maemo and learning about the Maemo community. Please do introduce yourself, and tell him about your Maemo-related projects and interests.
