Conclusion: There's nothing quite like the Nokia N800 (except the Nokia 770. It's a simple, compact yet powerful Internet lifestyle device that's perfect for those who want a desktop-like web browsing experience on the go.
Pros: Fantastic web browser, excellent high resolution touch screen display, acceptable price tag. Dual SD card slots makes for versatile memory expansion. Compact and attractive device. Good multimedia features. Excellent RSS reader. Very good sound through headphones and decent stereo sound through b...
Cons: Though cheap compared to UMPCs like the Samsung Q1 , the N800 isn't a trivial purchase. No popular IM client pre-installed other than Google Talk, and takes some techie knowledge to get GAIM (a Linux-based application that supports several popular IM services) working. Without this, the web-cam i...
Conclusion: From a personal perspective, my only concern in the real world is where and when I would use this. Having pushmail to my smartphone and laptop/datacard for browsing answers pretty much everything I need – If the Internet Tablet at least offered GPRS/EDGE or 3G connectivity as standard you would not...
Nokia N800 Internet Tablet: A New Nokia without a Phone
13 June 2007
Conclusion: The N800 is not a phone, but an internet centric device with a much improved design when compared to the 770 internet tablet. The overall build quality is excellent, with a few minor gripes like the loose battery compartment and high screen edges.
Summary: The N800 is great for catching up on those emails and other business uses, but it has some nice entertainment features like I mentioned before. You can watch videos, listen to music and have Web chats, thanks to Internet calling and the Web cam.
Excerpt: It’s a member of the Nseries family but it’s not a phone and it’s not running Symbian S60, it falls firmly in the internet appliance category, more specifically it’s an Internet Tablet and is running Linux-based Maemo 3.0 in the form of Internet Tablet OS 2007.
Conclusion: Using the browser and supplied Media Player application, you can stream audio and video from the Internet, including a decent array of Web radio formats. The Media Player also plays audio and video and displays digital images stored in internal flash memory or on an SD card.
Conclusion: A simple question, why does one need an internet tablet? After all you have a laptop, desktop PC, mobile phone with web browsing! So it's even more of a shame that Nokia's new N800 internet tablet is so good, when we can't find a use for it.
