It's out!

So, after a long time working hard on getting the new Canola2 ready, the first beta is now officially out the door. I would like to congratulate the whole team, the high spirit and INdT for making this project possible.

Canola2 is, in my eyes, a very different product than the former version. The basic principles are the same, easy media consumption, but everything has been rewritten and Canola2 is definitely a more mature product. It comes with support for playback of local media such as video and audio, as well as a new way of watching your photos.

But, now that Canola2 is a product for the Nokia Internet Tablet, we haven't neglected internet connectivity, and as a result Canola2 is shipped with support for internet radio, podcasts as well as photocasts (Flickr and Picasaweb have been confirmed to work).

If the new beta makes you as excited as I am, I would suggest you to have a look at our new product site,

where you will find screenshots, videos and more or less all there is to know about the new beta.

9 days to launch!

So, 9 days to the launch of the first Canola 2.0 beta. We are all very excited and we want you to be too, so we launched a teaser site so that you can already have a look at what you can expect. The site can be found at:

A bit more information on what the first beta will contain please consult the latest blog entry by Marcelo.

On a related note, Eduardo posted a video of Canola 2.0 running on the N770... pretty amazing that it runs as well as it does. Don't just throw out your N770 yet ;-) Also, Marcelo has written a nice entry about the photos view.
