Nokia today announced OS 2006 for the
Nokia 770 Internet tablet. OS 2006 is a major update for the 770 and
includes a host of new features and performance enhancements.
Probably one of the most prominent additions to OS 2006 is the
addition of Google Talk.
The Nokia 770 is a Linux-based
WiFi-enabled small form factor Internet tablet that allows users to
access Internet based services anywhere an open WiFi connection is
reported earlier this week that Nokia and Google had signed a
partnership agreement to develop portable technology solutions and
the inclusion of Google Talk in OS 2006 is the first indication of
OS 2006 includes
other updates as well, including better memory management, the
Jabber/XMPP protocol through Google Talk and SIP support. Nokia hopes
to support Skype competitor Gizmo's VoIP client on the device in the
near future as well. Google will also be the default search provider
for the device.
