Don’t ask me why, but it looks like Nokia has some issues promoting its next “super box”. I don’t really have any other explanation for the video below, which shows a Nokia N900 barely managing to “run” Mac OS X via an emulator:
Its creator Toni Nikkanen describes it as follows:
As you can see from the heavily edited video, it took almost 2 hours to reach the “About my Mac…” window. Keep your eye on the time display as that will give you an impression of just how uselessly slow it is. The emulator I used was the latest CVS snapshot of PearPC, which to my eye appears to be pretty good quality code, built without problems in Scratchbox. I experimented with the various frontends and finally settled on the SDL one, since support for the mouse cursor seemed to work best there. As in my previous emulation attempts, I used x11vnc to remotely control the mouse from a laptop sitting nearby. And once again the screen size of N900 was slightly too little to run something that expects a desktop-size display.
