Learning solutions company Sanako has partnered with Nokia to deliver their own handheld learning solution according to a news release on their website. The system based around the Linux based Nokia N810 wireless device with active connectivity to Interactive Whiteboards was demonstrated at the last BETT show.


Ian McDowall, Sanako’s UK Managing Director, feels that the collaboration with Nokia will enthuse both pupils and teachers alike He said, "We’re very confident that our collaboration with Nokia will provide a smooth integration of handheld learning in any classroom in school and at the same time engage learners with technology from a global brand they know so that they choose to continue learning outside of school."

Sanako will work to develop an educational edition, which is based on Nokia N810 Internet Tablet that makes use of the Linux Operating System.  A software developer kit for the open source community has been available for some time. Already a number of applications are available whilst the Sanako package also includes access to an on-line set-up wizard that enables schools to quickly and easily select the applications they would like to install on the tablet as well as add bookmarks linking to the school web site, Learning Platform or on-line content.
