Networking the Nokia 770

Word on the street is that the Nokia 770 "appliance PC" will be supporting the ZeroConf project. ZeroConf is software that allows devices to connect to each other almost seamlessly and with "Zero Configuration." In all actuality the ZeroConf is being developed for Maemo, but Maemo is the development platform being used for applications on the Nokia 770. The ZeroConf being developed for the Nokia 770 is going to work via WiFi or Bluetooth and adds two personal area network services, one for services and one for IP. ZeroCorf should help "coffee table"-esque PCs, like the Nokia 770, better integrate with home networks. More important, it will allow the 770 play multiplayer Doom.
