N800_orbJust saw on Twitter that the folks at Orb have teamed with Nokia to offer Orb’s MyCasting functions for the N800. This makes the N800 even more compelling due to the Orb feature set. Orb provides the ability to stream music, photos, live television and videos from a host PC to your mobile device. I always thought Orb on a UMPC or Windows Mobile handheld was awesome; viewing content on the Nokia’s larger screen should rock!

Nokia has a press release  about the new software here; you can download Orb for your N800 directly from the Orb site. Bear in mind that you’ll need Orb on a host PC as well; if you plan to stream a television signal, you’ll need a compatible tuner card in the PC.

  1. It’s great that Orb supports the N800….but they don’t support Macs/OSX…

  2. Nice to see another company supporting the N800.

  3. What we REALLY need on our little lovely 800′s is SKYPE, SLINGBOX and longer battery life….then all will be good…until the next thing comes along.

    Slingbox on my Treo telephone has been AMAZING. With Slingbox’s new additional features, my Treo’s battery is also at risk. VERY nice picture…current news, all kinds of good stuff. And P-Tunes makes streaming radio the second reason why my Treo battery is dipping every day. Good thing these mobile devices aren’t still 30 pounds (or whatever my Radio Shack cell phone brick was).

  4. You Mac people NEVER miss an opportunity to comment do you? even on an article about a mobile device with linux?

    How can everything be relative to a Mac?
