You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
(Settings > General > About product)
Nokia N900, Maemo 5, Version 2.2009.51-1.002
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Not a bug, new feature request; details in comments section.
Hermes should be able to retrieve contact details such as profile pictures,
birthday, phone number, IM usernames, etc from Google's social networking
Hermes currently support Twitter and Facebook only.
(always, less than 1/10, 5/10, 9/10)
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
Since facebook is really popular in western world with 350 million users, Orkut
is google's space in social networking. It has 100 million users, most of them
in Brazil and India.
It would be great if n900 users are able to update the contacts with data
retrieved from orkut. Mine is a classical case where 50 of my friends are in
facebook and rest 350 are in orkut.

Few additional information/ comments as suggested by Jaffa:
Social Network Suggested: Orkut.com
1. Generic or Friend Oriented: This is a friend oriented social network.
2. URL : orkut.com
3. Developer API: Found this link with google:
http://code.google.com/intl/en-US/apis/orkut/ I guess the API is based on
4. Fields supported: (not sure about fields supported). The API on the above
link is for writing Orkut applications which are shown on web page of Orkut.
5. Identifier: not sure about this.
*** This bug has been confirmed by popular vote. ***
pls add orkut..to rock this phone in india we need N900 with orkut application
(Please avoid "Me too!" comments that just create bugmail for everybody.
Instead just silently "Vote for this bug", please.)
OpenSocial API is good news. Having looked at it briefly, all of MySpace,
Orkut, Hi5, Plaxo (and a fifth I forgot) all support (to some extent) the
OpenSocial REST Resources on MySpace wiki: (which is what I used with Plaxo)
