[maemo-users] offline installation request

You can install this way for applications that are offered as straight
.debs or you can choose to manually browse the repositories in the
browser to download.  The time it would take though to download would
be the same as you'd be needing for a straight install so I'm not sure
how much time you are really saving.  The advantage of the repository
installer file is that you can see updates from the apps you've
installed and if there are additional library files required they
usually get installed at the same time preventing (many) errors.
