Maemo is a computer architecture platform built on desktop open source components. It is aimed at enabling applications and innovative technology for mobile handheld devices.


The platform is based on the GNU/Linux operating system and the GNOME desktop. Maemo brings developers an easy to use development environment. Its finger optimized Hildon UI is customized for the screen size and usage typical for a touch screen enabled handheld device. The development platform is targeted at innovative developers and organizations developing applications and new technologies for the mobile space. Utilizing the maemo platform it is easy to mobilize existing desktop solutions. Maemo enables various business models on the top of the platform, including proprietary application distribution.


Maemo, first introduced in 2005, is one of the core platforms for Nokia’s high-end products. Maemo has reached a level of functionality to provide a full Internet experience in pocket sized device – with an intuitive UI. The Maemo devices on market include the Nokia N800, the Nokia N810 and the Nokia N900.

The maemo platform currently offers a native C runtime for developers, complemented by officially supported C++ bindings. A complete set of Python bindings are provided by the community. Web run-time with Mozilla Gecko engine and Flash 9. Mono, Java and Ruby run-times are provided by the maemo community, among others.

The Maemo SDK creates a sandboxed maemo development environment on a GNOME/Linux desktop system. The sandboxed environment is built principally on a tool called Scratchbox. In most ways this environment behaves like the operating system on the device, but with added development tools. This means that the development process is very similar to normal desktop Linux and GNOME/GTK+ development and the unique features of embedded development, such as cross-compiling, are handled transparently by Scratchbox.
