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.
This will be the third version of this product, indicating a good level of success for a once-perceived niche market. This time they are pimping it out with a full keyboard.
The model number is the N810, so really it will just be an upgraded version of the N800. The internet tablet will have the Mozilla browser, Skype, a camera, music player, oh, and the best part, they are integrating the GPS hardware and a bunch of pre-loaded maps.
If you want to see a contentious gadget, take a quick look at Nokia's N800 internet tablet. Some love it - for its easy net surfing, handy size and crisp screen - while others would like to see it burn in a fiery grave. There's no denying that the pre-loaded Opera browser has a mixed track record in terms of stability and performance; now Nokia are giving users an alternative and likely hoping that basing the new browser on Mozilla (i.e. that behind the ever-popular Firefox) will salve a few ills (and ill-wills).
Oi Microsoft! I like cake too! But did you send me any when I started blogging for SlashGear? No you sodding well didn't. This is blatant Firefox-favouritism.
The sweet-toothed IE team over at Redmond were so pleased to see Mozilla launch Firefox 2.0 that they sent them a cake. Cue the predictable jokes (was it poisoned? is it full of bugs?) The news here, I suppose, is the launch and the fact that relations between the two companies are nowhere near as fraught as those between each browser's fan-community, an ongoing feud that I suspect would require more than sugar to sweeten.
