Here I am to join the lucky posts on planet.maemo.org about getting an N810 discount. Thanks to Nokia for choosing me again! :)
My new media center will soon be ready for the first release. It's already working great, only some rough edges to fix and some performance boosts to apply. When dealing with lots of thumbnail images in an resource-restricted environment such as the N800, you'll have to take special care about clean and efficient programming. And when I say "lots of thumbnail images", I mean that every video, every music ablum, and every image gets a thumbnail preview.
Another big challenge will be to get the app running fine on the Nokia 770. No, this device isn't dead for me yet. Since the video bus of the 770 is actually faster than that of the N800, kinetic scrolling works great there as well. But I'm still struggling with memory limitations and some mplayer issues on the 770.
