So you think PythonCard is old? Here's new wine in an old bottle.

Just for the record, Nokia Internet tablets (770, N800, N810) are the only 
things made by Nokia that are not cell-phones... They're ARM machines with 
a 800x480 4" screen, Wifi, Bluetooth, and Linux. And Python, pyGTK and 
Pygame. Probably pyQt next as they just bought Trolltech. But no wxPython.

I was not speaking of running just the client part in the device's browser, 
either - but the full Monty (haha) with the web server and the application 
engine, python, middleware and all. I'm doing it right now using a full-
blown framework (web2py), so it's not unreasonable. There's no Ajax in 
there though, so I'm wondering what kind of impact those tools you mention 
would have, server side.

Proof of superior vision, architecture and design, all that time ago...
