| The theory is simple: We work together; the open source community and Nokia. 
| We provide excellent devices and services to end users in large volumes with 
| attractive terms. In addition to software and product development, we need 
| great marketing, smooth distribution, and good manufacturing. We also need to 
| support various business models that can deliver the devices and services to 
| our customers. Excellent devices, available everywhere, with the right price. 
| Simple….

Review: Nokia N810 Internet Tablet

,----[ Quote ]
| The battery life is a little limiting, with about four hours’ continuous 
| use – not enough for a busy working day. Beyond the internet, the N810 is a 
| powerful portable computer in its own right. It runs a mobile version of the 
| Linux operating system, with plenty of applications available for download.   


Using external USB storage, Bluetooth headsets with the Nokia N810

| We have a few nifty Nokia Internet Tablet tricks for you today. The first 
| comes from Kate Alhola, Nokia's chief Maemo engineer, who wrote a blog entry 
| explaining how to use external USB storage devices with the Nokia N810. 
| Apparently, the N810 supports USB-OTG, which adds basic USB host support to 
| the device, making it possible to use a limited range of USB peripherals.

| The N810, like its predecessors the N800 and N770, isn't a phone. It's a 
| Linux-based handheld computer that connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi or with 
| a Bluetooth connection through a mobile phone. Nokia has finally gotten the 
| form factor right; the N810 is a pleasure to hold and to use.   


Nokia N810 Internet Tablet Review

| The Nokia N810 Internet Tablet is the third model in this companies series of 
| traditional handhelds, and the best so far. It is the first with integrated 
| GPS capabilities and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.   
| This Linux-based device lets you connect to the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot with 
| 802.11b/g, and if that isn't enough, it can connect via Bluetooth to a mobile 
| phone. You can then access the Web with the best mobile browser currently 
| available, watch streaming video, make VoIP calls, and much more.   


Review of Nokia N810

| Due to the heavy marketing by Apple and Amazon, you are surely by now 
| familiar with the iPhone and Kindle. Those are very interesting devices, but 
| I recently made a comparison between them and the new Nokia N810 and, in the 
| end, went with the N810.   


Nokia N810 review

| Like the N800, the N810 delivers one of the best experiences in mobile web 
| browsing on the market. The new browser that ships with OS2008 is truly 
| outstanding, and most of the rest of OS2008 is pretty darn impressive too. 
| For Linux enthusiasts as well as regular users, Nokia's Maemo-based software 
| platform offers power, flexibility, and ease of use.    


Nokia N810: unboxing and first impressions

,----[ Quote ]
| My shiny new Nokia N810 Internet Tablet was delivered yesterday. After 
| fondling it for most of the day, I'm relatively impressed. The N810 is a bit 
| smaller than the N800, which makes it more comfortable to use and easier to  
| tote around in a pocket.

| calling, the Nokia N810 provides the functionality of a traditional computer 
| but all in one sleek, stylish and portable device.
