Nokia N810 turned into Bluetooth keyboard & mouse remote

If you've built a media PC and are now looking for a reasonable wireless keyboard and mouse, how about using the Nokia N800 or N810 Internet Tablet instead?  BlueMaemo is a port of ReMoko for the Linux-based Maemo OS used on the touchscreen devices, and basically offers the Internet Tablet as a combined keyboard and mouse device via the Bluetooth HID profile.

Mozilla will release an alpha-build of their new Firefox Mobile browser by the end of next week, initially only for the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet.  The software, codenamed Fennec, is intended for preliminary code checking with a touchscreen-centric device, according to Jay Sullivan, Mozilla vice president of mobile, and precedes a Windows Mobile version that will drop "in a few months".  As well as the multifunction search & address 'awesome bar', Firefox for Mobile will support swipe-gestures for calling up control and contextual menus, and use the same Gecko rendering engine as the desktop version of Firefox.

Nokia N810 running Android OS – could be better than OS2008 for the N810

Some enterprising fellows over at eLinux.org have found a way to get Google's Android OS onto a Nokia N810 with its OMAP2 chips, which means this particular hack should also work with some Sharp Zaurus models. Anyways, the Android OS looks simply heavenly on the N810 and just goes to further prove that the OS isn't limited by a cellular connection, it can work on a broad range of mobile devices.

Nokia N810 with WiMAX dropping April 1st?

Nokia N810 with WiMAX dropping April 1st?

Word on the streets is that we could see the new WiMAX capable Nokia N810 as early as April 1st at CTIA. Personally I’d be more interested in seeing Sprint’s Xohm network finally launch, but I’d settle for a WiMAX ready N810.

Nokia N810 now for sale in Canada

Sure, you could have easily crossed the border and bought one, but now you can keep your ugly Canadian money in the barren cold up north.

Nokia N810 Internet Tablet well worked over by ThoughtFix

If information on Nokia's N810 Internet Tablet is your current poison of choice, then you'll want to go hang out with ThoughFix who is blogging the hell out of the compact net-surfing device. Not content with a nicely detailed overview video of the device (which you can see after the cut), he's been comparing it to its N800 predecessor, checking out video performance (as the N800 was renowned for promising big things in mobile video but lacking the processor grunt to back up those claims) and generally exploring why the N810 should have space in your bag.

Nokia kill off N810 WiMAX Edition Internet Tablet

Nokia have axed their N810 WiMAX Edition Internet Tablet, and while the Finnish company did not state their reasons for its demise, a fair guess would be that it's due to the slower-than-expected spread of the WiMAX network itself.  However, according to company spokesperson Laurie Armstrong, Nokia is not writing off WiMAX altogether.

Nokia shipping N810 to US finally

Nokia shipping N810 to US finally

You can finally get an N810 shipped to your house direct from Nokia. In case you’ve forgotten, this thing puts UMPC’s, several laptops, any PMP I’ve seen, and navigations units all to shame at once.

It comes with GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, a touchscreen, an onscreen keyboard, a slide out keyboard, 2GB of storage, a SD card slot to add up to 8GB of more storage, and maps, Mozilla with flash support, and several other apps all built in. The best part is the price point.

Nokia “tweener” tablet tipped in mobile gaming push [Video]

Nokia's tablet ambitions may see the company slotting a so-called "tweener" device in-between smartphone and the currently available slates, according to Nokia EVP Tero Ojanperä. Speaking at SXSW this week with Rovio CEO Peter Vesterbacka, the Nokia exec suggested that the existing crop of tablets wouldn't be the last word in innovation, and predicted something somewhat larger than a smartphone could find a niche.
