Nokia N810 AnalysisNov 2008
Usability and interface research carried out through two workshops with children from differing economic strata. The data was revelatory not only in terms of interface, but also product-accessibility, product-design, applications and hardware limitations. The process and data was presented to Nokia in the form of a short booklet, and was evaluated for the next generation hand-held (the N900).
Simultaneously, the workshops also gathered crucial insights into the functionality of Scratch on the N810. We tested the Scratch environment on the following parameters: scalability of interface, speed, audio, multi-lingual facilities, external sensors, touch-screen capabilities and compatibility with the non-portable version of Scratch.
