This is cool enough to make me want one of these. Reading mail via Pine on a handheld…whooda thunk?

SSH for Series 60!.


Making the Nokia 3650/6600 phones now a kick-ass tool to have in emergencies for web admins, SSH has been ported to the Series 60 platform.

Combine this with Yellow FTP and you have yourself a damn-fine way of remotely maintaining a server. Start/stop processes, edit files, etc.

It works like a charm. My coworker Todd and I were just playing with it and it has all the features you need to get the job done. Special characters, control keys, Function keys, etc. and I just tested PINE on it as well – talk about a great way to check email remotely!

And if you happen to have a wireless Palm keyboard, here's an infrared keyboard driver for the Series 60 phones as well. Talk about a mobile office!

Awesome stuff!
