WebOS games running on the Nokia N900

Oct 26, 2010

Does it feel like sometimes there's nothing the N900 or the Maemo community can't do if they put their mind to it?

Full WebOS games running on the device without the need for the WebOS Operating System (OS) loaded on the phone. Javispedro seems to be the man that can. Here are some of the reasons that this is possible:

  • The Palm Pre has a OMAP3430
  • The Palm Pre has a PowerVR SGX and OpenGL ES 2.0 libs
  • The Palm Pre is running GNU/Linux
  • The official way to code native apps in the Palm Pre is using SDL 1.2, which has a standard interface and Palm has released their modifications in compliance to the LGPL.
  • The N900 has a OMAP3430
  • The N900 has a PowerVR SGX and OpenGL ES 2.0 libs
  • The N900 is running GNU/Linux
  • The N900 has SDL 1.2
