    Run Tracker, open source Java ME project for your running activities 

    Today I’d like to present a new open source Java ME project recently published on Nokia Developer Projects.

    Run Tracker is a simple Java ME app that allows to track and record various parameters of running activities, including route, distance, duration and speed of each run.

    The complete source code is available, and shows how to use some of the Java ME Location API features to integrate Ovi Maps mapping and positioning features in a MIDlet.

    Check it out, and let me know your thoughts about it.

    Three open source projects for WRT developers: Bing, Buzz and RSS 

    Today I’ve released three widgets as open source projects on the brand new project management tool by Nokia, to allow all WRT developers to freely use and contribute to them.

    The first project is for a widget that allows the user to perform searches through the Bing search engine.

    Its code shows how many widgets’ common features can be implemented, including:

    • integrate a public REST API
    • retrieve and show dynamic data from network
    • detect and adapt to different screen resolutions
    • handle touch and key-based user interaction
    • show tabbed views
    • download dynamic code updates and new versions of the widget

    The second widget is a configurable RSS reader supporting multiple RSS feeds at once. The widget is easily adaptable to different needs, where retrieval and displaying of remote XML feeds is needed.

    The last project is a client for Google’s Buzz social network: the current functionalities include searching by keyword, and retrieving of Buzzes of a single user. Many more features are under development: feel free to take a look and integrate yours :)

    As these are open source projects, everyone is invited to dig into the code and to contribute to the them: just join the project, and start experimenting! To start, visit Forum Nokia Projects.

    Maemo and Moblin merged to MeeGo! 

    Here’s the big news from Intel, Maemo and Nokia: MeeGo!

    MeeGo is an open source, Linux project which brings together the Moblin project, headed up by Intel, and Maemo, by Nokia, into a single open source activity. MeeGo integrates the experience and skills of two significant development ecosystems, versed in communications and computing technologies. The MeeGo project believes these two pillars form the technical foundations for next generation platforms and usages in the mobile and device platforms space.

    Moblin and maemo are merging! We are taking the best pieces from these two open source projects and are creating the MeeGo software platform. Both teams have worked for a long time to support the needs of the mobile user experience – and MeeGo will make this even better. We want it to be fun, focused, flexible, technically challenging and ultimately, something that can change the world.

    Symbian now completely open source! 

    The Symbian countdown has ended, and the mystery is finally solved: Symbian is now completely open source!

    What does this mean practically? From the official announcement:

    Any individual or organization can now take, use and modify the code for any purpose, whether that be for a mobile device or for something else entirely.

    And more:

    All 108 packages containing the source code of the Symbian platform can now be downloaded from Symbian’s developer web site (tiny.symbian.org/open), under the terms of the Eclipse Public License and other open source licenses. Also available for download are the complete development kits for creating applications (the Symbian Developer Kit) and mobile devices (the Product Development Kit).

    Even if already announced, this step is huge for the mobile ecosystem, and I could not agree more with the words of Eben Moglen, Founding Director, Software Freedom Law Center:

    Software freedom on mobile hardware is absolutely necessary to the preservation of privacy and the encouragement of innovation in mobile technology, and to protecting the freedom of the Net overall.

    Well done, Symbian!
