Conclusion: If you are like me and don’t like to be carrying several devices, then it’s tantalisingly close to achieving that nirvana as an all-in-one replacement for a PDA, mp3 player and mobile phone. This in itself is worth paying good money for.
Conclusion: If you're looking for the perfect couch or bedside companion that boots instantly and won't attract virii like Windows, but has a desktop-like web browser, email, PDF viewer, music player and more, then the N810 is attractive. It sells for significantly less than list price (often under $400) and for that price it has a lot to offer then Internet-addicted set.
Summary: The Nokia N810 Internet Tablet is a noteworthy improvement over its predecessor in terms of design, internal storage, and processor speed. Functionality, however, has remained mostly unchanged. The N800 doesn't have an integrated GPS receiver or a hardware keyboard, but its extra expansion card slot and the fact that OS2008 is available as an update makes upgrading to the N810 more of a superfluous option than a necessity.
Conclusion: Even as recent as a year ago, the N810 would have easily impressed. But today we live in a post-iPhone world, in which the expectations for mobile Internet devices have been raised significantly. In it’s defense, the N810′s browser is more robust and standards compliant than the iPhone (e.g. support for Flash), it’s just not nearly as much fun to use and suffers from slow rendering, scrolling and zooming.
