    Lightbulb Nokia 770 powered MP3CAR

    I took a Nokia 770, Canola Media Player software, and ProClip USA mounting hardware and put it all together:

    Here's the article:

    Pictures and video included.

    No feedback? None at all? (sob)

    I also reviewed ALK Software's CoPilot Live for the Motorola Q. They have it for other platforms too. That article is here with pictures and video of course.

    Does anyone know a good digital video camera that can focus in within a few inches?

    The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet has much more going for it than just MP3 playback. While Canola works best with music and video, the same mount and line input can be use for GPS software and more. I have a ton of links I could offer to support that, but simply browsing the rest of that blog will show you enough.

    That's an interesting blog. So the Nokia 770 is basically like a upc? Is it also a cell phone?

    Sucks that the screen is so small. Is it true you can only upgrade the memory to 1 gig? Is there another way to add mass media storage?

    Pretty good for the price I suppose. I'm going to definately look into these more. Looks like there's tons of hacks/aftermarket mods for these.

    It's an internet tablet with more hacks thon you can believe. More than a pda and not quite a UMPC , but with Linux under the hood it's quite nice. That little display is 800x480

    To answer the question on external storage:
    First you need to build a hack that'll allow USB host mode to work properly:

    Then mounting is just like Linux:

    Update:
    The Canola developers contacted me and told me that the next release of Canola will leave the backlight on when the device is plugged in. Good news for car use!
