Michal Čihař - Hackweek and Symbian support in Gammu

Hackweek and Symbian support in Gammu

Last year I did not have much time to spend on non work related projects in Hackweek, because we took the opportunity and replaced some internal systems, when people were not using them. It will be different this year and I've decided to spend some time on Gammu.

The plan is to implement support for Symbian phones. It is one of frequently requested features and thanks to Series60-remote I can as well see way how to implement it. Current plan is to add support for their applet, with possible extending it in future and adding some features which it lacks.

You can comment this feature in openFATE or Gammu bug tracker.

PS: Introduction video can be found on blip.tv.

NO! You can't implement this feature!

The Nokia Suite is the LAST application I use on windows!

Doing so will make me leave MS Windows FOREVER!

Don't worry, there still be some bits missing. For example map downloader.

I would like to have it on Linux as well, but that will be probably a bit harder :-).

When will support Android.
It is strange that Linux-based system connects more easily with Windows

@Niki: As soon as somebody will implement it. People tend to hack things they need, that's why I started with Symbian support - because I have Symbian based phone.
