Aava Virta 2 smartphone

July 13, 2010 2 comments

The guys at Engadget managed to get a bit of hands on time with the new Aava Android/MeeGo dev platform.

Being the loving fanboys that they are, they expressed their disappointment that MeeGo was shown running on the device as opposed to the almighty Android (end sarcasm).

Obviously not a big departure from the previous device (including specs) it’ll ship to developers for a mere €1900 ($2393).

Aava Mobile MeeGo Demolishes iPhone iOS4 and Nexus One Android 2.2 in JavaScript Test

July 8, 2010 5 comments

Ars Technica performed some JavaScript Benchark tests of Android 2.2 (on Nexus One) against iOS4 (on iPhone) which they said, “Demolishes iOS4”.

Well as Chippy from UMPCPortal and CarryPad shows, MeeGo beats them both.

The image above shows firefox on a netbook, 3936.2ms vs 4215.2ms on Aava mobile. From Ars Techica’s tests, iPhone with iOS4 took 10901.1s with Android on 5795.2s

What’s the significance of this? Well it shows that MeeGo on the Aava mobile (via 1.5GHz Intel Moorsetown and firefox) will load pages significantly faster than the iPhone, more than twice as fast – up to 1.5 seconds faster than Nexus.

Browser type, OS, and device hardware (processors) are the factors involved here. Default browsers are used in general tests to compare default usage.

Here are some other devices :

Do note that the Aava mobile is just a reference design product – not something you will see on retail shelves any time soon.


Can you see the camera snapping this photo? ^_^ N82 FTW!

Pics: Aava Mobile’s Moorsetown MeeGo Phone (and Android)

July 7, 2010 5 comments

We’ve seen this Finnish phone before running Moblin and a Qt Interface to demo a possible MeeGo UI (or at least a reference design).  We saw it most recently demonstrating the new MeeGo handset UX on video. Chippy, aka Steve Paine of CarryPad has it for the next 48 hours!

This is Aava Mobile (also Finnish, but not Nokia), a phone on Intel’s X86 chip (Moorsetown). It’s not the first Moorsetown phone, that goes to the cancelled LG W990. (Note, Aava’s site only mentions Android for some reason)

Nokia’s first MeeGo Phone will be using, like the majority of smartphones currently, an ARM based processor. Future MeeGo Phones from Nokia may have Intel chips in future but until Nokia are satisfied with performance/battery life/size they’ll be sticking with ARM.

Visual Multitasker.

Here’s Android on it

this explains why in the MeeGo demo it had android like buttons – as it seemed designed for Android.
