Spinning Zoom as universal Maemo gesture

Would be great to use the same gesture in maps app, image viewer, where it is feasible. Developpers shouln't be bothered to implement it, this gesture should be transparent for applications.

3g throttler (battery saver)

Posted on 2009-11-14 12:22 UTC by Chris Phillips. Status: Under consideration, Categories: System.

A 2G connection is shown to be less power hungry than 3G. Since the N900 is an 'always on' data device, using 2G as its main source of data for low data intense applications (email/widgets) would make sense. However if you wanted to say surf the internet/stream music, 2G is just too slow.

System wide searching for Maemo 5 devices

Posted on 2009-11-23 03:04 UTC by Venomrush .. Status: Under consideration, Categories: System.

This idea came from the fact Maemo 5 devices are not able to search within the Email application.


Maemo 5 devices seems to lack a system wide search function.

The function will search in Messaging, Contacts, Email, Musc, Calendar and Bookmarks for a specific keyword.

This feature has been implemented for previous Symbian devices such as the N97.

It should work in both portrait and landscape mode.

Can intentionally or maliciously (by third-party) delete all contacts on your N900.
