Hacking the Nokia Internet Tablet
For Further Hackery
Getting more information on the tablets and their extensibility is easy, thanks to excellent documentation on the Internet about these units. The first stop when looking for information should be the maemo.org site. This site is the home for all things tablet-related, from the Nokia wiki, to the software repositories, as well as the software updates and source code archives. It's all on maemo.org—except for the true hacks. Those can be found in the archives of the Internet Tablet Talks forums. The people there have come up with some truly amazing hacks and other really neat ways of using the tablets, and there's something new almost every day there.
