| Nokia announced today that the new Nokia N810 Internet Tablet has begun 
| shipping nationwide in the United States.  With a new slide-out keyboard,

| but all in one sleek, stylish and portable device.    



Linux alternative to iPhone

| Since the N800 is open source, there are many third party applications which 
| extend its usefulness and fun factor, such as: 
| Pidgin - full-featured internet messaging client, with AIM, MSN, Yahoo and 
| Jabber support 
| Canola - media player with network streaming
| FBReader - e-book reader
| Claws Mail - full-featured email client
| Obscura Photo Manager


Nokia N800 As an EBook Reader Using FBReader

,----[ Quote ]
| Though N800 is an Internet Tablet, it can serve as a very good ebook reader 
| too, for those casual/semi-serious readers who don’t want to invest in a 
| stand-alone ebook reader. At its screen size and resolution, reading ebooks 
| is extremely pleasing on the eye. It supports HTML, PDF, etc formats out of 
| the box; but what truly makes it such a good candidate to be used as an ebook 
| reader is the excellent(read Free) ebook reader software available for it 
| called FBReader.      


Review: Nokia N800 now with Skype

,----[ Quote ]
| While I enjoyed using the Nokia N800 prior to the firmware upgrade, once 
| having Skype installed made the unit made the Nokia N800 an almost 
| indispensable tool carry around. Having the ability to make phone calls 
| anywhere in the world from any location that has wireless internet was neat. 
| Furthermore with a SkypeIn plan you can easily receive phone calls from just 
| about any place in the world that has wifi. The addition of having Skype made 
| the Nokia N800 a near cellphone like device.      


First look: Skype for the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet

,----[ Quote ]
| Not only was there an updated version of the Linux-based Internet Tablet OS 
| and significantly-improved hardware, but Nokia also promised us a 
| fully-functional Skype client for the N800. Nearly six months after the 
| tablet's launch, the Skype client has finally arrived.   


Nokia adds FM radio to N800 Internet tablet

,----[ Quote ]
| It's not often that a company ships a gizmo with an entire hardware
| feature unremarked upon and unsupported, then later turns it on free
| of charge - but that's what Nokia did with the new N800 Internet
| tablet. They just released a package which enables an FM radio
| tuner in the unit.
