Canola 2.0 running on Nokia 770

A while ago we were curious about how would be the performance of the new version of Canola running on a Nokia 770 device. After a whole day building packages and compiling stuff, our mate Renato Chencarek was finally able to make it run on the device. We thought it also deserved a video, just like others we posted.



It's a Nokia 770 device running OS2006 (gregale) and you can see it performs surprisingly well! Actually, it feels like the performance is better than on N800/N810. As we don't have that damn tearing effect, you can see the UI elements just move smoothly. Unfortunately, the screen is not as sensitive as the N800 or N810, so some tasks like dragging and panning will demand more effort than in the other devices.

Looks fantastic ! This Evas+Edje+Python combination seems incredibly efficient... Now I know what my retired 770 is going to be used for ! :-)

Yeah, it's really sad to see the development for such a nice device abandoned.

Wow! I'm stunned.

Have you tried it under 2007HE, or should the regular 2007 version work just as well.

The regular version for OS 2007 should work in the Hacker Edition.
