Okay, so it was only earlier on today that I wrote an article on Nokia’s N800 internet tablet, but the information comes thick and fast and we’re already due for an update. In that post I pondered something a lot of people were asking – can the device handle YouTube streaming video? Well, John Tokash has gone all-out on exploring the limits of the N800’s capabilities, and it turns out that when it comes to online videos it’s a disappointment.
As you can see, playback is stuttering out at 1 or 2 frames a second, which is painful to watch. Audio is generally unmangled, however. John also looks at the usability and design updates in comparison with the 770, which makes his articles equally interesting to the first-time potential buyer and the upgrade-considerer.
