Nokia N900 running in portrait mode


Maemo 5 is available in landscape mode mostly. Only the phone app, photo browser and some 3rd party application run in portrait mode. Thus, two hands are required that is sometime annoying. Now, Guyver from managed to run the Nokia N900 in portrait mode:

Hi, i somehow managed to get my n900 in portrait mode from a glitch. How weird.. lol

I probably cant recreate it again, but i just tilted the phone to launch the phone app then slide up the screen and closed the phone app.

Let’s hope that Nokia will add this feature in a upcoming firmware.

    have managed to do this also – quite by accident as days ago i tried for ages with the keyboard / phone method described to no avail – today though i sat down at my computer to put phone onto charge while working, must have tilted it and accidentally activated phone (on auto turning) so plugged phone into computer via usb while on phone screen – went and deactivated turning control and pressed cross to close phone app and that was it – was sitting in portrait for everything … stayed in portrait regardless of turning etc now
