I found this project yesterday on IRC and I think it deserves some publicity :) .

QTablet is a fully Qt and QGraphicsView based application framework which main target is internet tablets such as N810. It provides QLauncer for launching applications, Home screen called the Wall and Pager for changing between two virtual desktops and placeholders for minimized application. QTablet uses also Qt Animation Framework for doing transitions between Wall, QLauncher and Pager.

Check out the video, it features virtual desktops, cool animations (without openGL :)) and is also possible to launch hildon apps inside the QT framework. At the moment the installation isn’t straightforward, but deserves a try at lest :) .

Yesterday at VMworld conference, VMware displayed its new mobile virtualisation platform, showing how the technology could let users run two operating systems on the same device at the same time. The device used in the presentation was a Nokia n800, the video bellow show a very good performance, running Android and Windows CE at the same time.

Mozilla just announced the release of Fennec alpha 2 for the N810, you can found the release notes and how to install this browser in your tablet here.

After a few tests it seems a little bit faster that the first Fennec release,  but it still a little bit far from the MicroB performance in my opinion.
