Early trials

Nokia had plans for a internet tablet since before 2000. An early model was test manufactured in 2001, the Nokia M510, which was running on EPOC and featuring an Opera browser, speakers and a 10-inch 800x600 screen, but it was not released because of fears that the market was not ready for it.[2]


Nokia Internet Tablets run the Debian Linux-based Maemo, which draws much of its GUI, frameworks, and libraries from the GNOME project. It uses the embedded-targeted Matchbox as its window manager it uses Hildon, a lightweight GTK-based toolkit designed for handheld devices, as its GUI and application framework.

Alternative distributions

Maemo can be replaced entirely by a number of other Linux distributions.

  • NITdroid is a port of Google's Android.[3]
  • Ubuntu has been ported.[4]
  • Mer is a new distribution created by combining Ubuntu with the open source packages from Maemo.[5]
  • Gentoo an unofficial port of Gentoo Linux is available.[6][7]
