Install Debian on the Nokia N810


The Nokia N810 tablet is a great buy, especially for hackers. It already ships with a Linux-based operating system, called OS2008, which is based upon Maemo 4.0. However, for those who aren’t fans of OS2008, you can install Debian easily with some patience and an extra memory card. The Debian install includes OpenOffice, Firefox 3, AbiWord, and IceWM. You should be aware that there are pitfalls. Some of the applications run slowly, and you may be in danger of losing data if you run into problems.

  1. I hate to be picky, but the N810 already runs Debian. ‘Maemo’ is a Debian-based distribution, in much the same way Ubuntu is a Debian-based distribution.

    It is a hack though ;-)
