N900 starts showing junk characters

Well, sometime back I bought N900, some snaps here. And sooner than later I started playing with it. In an effort to reduce the disk usage for the “/” (root) partition, I removed some packages that were taking too much of space and managed to get the mobile to a stage where a lot of applications started displaying strange and junk characters and also cannot use package manager any more…errors reported.

To fix, this there was not solution that I could find on the net and thus started searching for a solution on my own. Finally found that that locales package was missing so what you need to do is following, in case you manage to get to similar state 🙂

Open a x-terminal on your Maemo based N900 and issue the following command:

1
apt-get install posix-locales

This should fix the issue.

Edit : Fixed the issue with the command not properly displayed in the blog post.

Best Mobile Internet Browser (Opera Mini vs. SkyFire)


Showdown: Best Mobile Internet Browser (Opera Mini vs. SkyFire) mobile internet browsersDo you browse the web on your mobile device? As cell phones get faster connection speeds, processors, bigger screens and better applications, it’s getting easier and easier to go online with them. Add in the fact that most websites have a mobile version now and it makes this an even simpler process.

Today, we’re going to decide which mobile Internet browsers is the best out there. After much research, I have narrowed it down to the top two, the Opera Mini and SkyFire browsers. If you’re tired of your mobile device’s stock browser, these are more than capable alternatives.

In this article, I am going to cover what these mobile Internet browsers have to offer, detailing their key features, supported operating systems, and whatever else I can find to be useful for all of your mobile browsing needs.

[Note]: Last year, Jeffry gave us 5 Mini Browsers For Mobile Phones, so mobile browsing has been a viable topic for some time now. If you really want to explore the past, check out Aibek’s Browsing Web on your Mobile Phone article from April of 2008. Mobile devices have changed dramatically since this time, so let’s explore what’s changed in mobile browsing.

Opera Mini mobile web browser

Supports * BlackBerry * iPhone/iPod/iPad * Windows Mobile * Android * Java phones

To download Opera Mini, use your phone’s default browser to visit m.opera.com. You can find more options here.

SkyFire mobile web browser

Supports * Android * Windows Mobile * Nokia/Symbian (Series 60)

The SkyFire mobile Internet browser has come a long way since we first covered it back in December 2008. It supports bookmarks, pinch-to-zoom, and visual multi-tab browsing, for starters. Tabbed scrolling is very similar to the Safari browser on the iPhone, and you can scroll between up to 8 screens.

With its new SkyBar (SkyFire 2.0), the browser will catch flash videos on a given page, giving you the option to watch them in full screen. That’s right, SkyFire plays flash web video.
