Hello Vikas,

maemo is a application framework which need a OS in form of a rootstrap. If you will install maemo you get a development framework. To use the framework you need a host which needs a OS by himself. Maemo is not something like a gui or a phone OS like symbian.
What do you looking for?

Hi developers.

I am Vikas.
I have a basic doubt.

I got the information from Wikipedia that Nokia N800 uses Maemo3.0 in
the form of Internet Tablet OS 2007.
Am I right that this means that Maemo is almost a complete package with
which a phone can have very basic functionalities???????

Now, the library stack of Maemo3.0 looks like this according to

Hildon-------------------------------------Topmost layer
GTK+, D-Bus
X Window System

GNU/Linux---------------------------------Lowest layer

Now if I put the above open source components on a hardware platform (an
appropriate board with LCD display, used for development, not the
phone's board)
and then install Maemo3.0  on top of it, will I see the very basic GUI
of the mobile phone and develop further????????????
Is such a thing possible????????
If yes, please let me know which hardware board to use for this

Please let me know...
Awaiting a reply....

Thank you,
Vikas N.R
