Squeak now running on Nokia N810

18 January, 2008

Nokia N810

Derek O’Connell reports that he has Squeak up and running on the new Nokia N810. Having compiled a Unix VM for the platform, he was then able to run a standard Squeak image without tweaking! Performance is acceptable, and it works well with the new keyboard on the N810, but it doesn’t pick up on some of the system events, so a little work is needed for Squeak to work seamlessly.

Derek received his N810 as one of the 500 lucky developers given access to the device through the maemo.org “Nokia N810 maemo device program”, based on his proposal to port Squeak to the device.

  1. Ed Grant Says:

    Has more work been done to make Squeak more compatible with the N810?

    Would it make sense to port Squeak to the Nokia N800 which only has an virtual on-screen keyboard?
