Once I picked it up, there was no going back. I plunked down by cash and started fooling around.
Here are the pros and cons as I see them.
As of now, there is no PC sync, so this is not really intended as a substitute for a PDA -- however I use my company's web-based intranet (webexone) to keep of all of my appointments and N800 works flawlessly. It appears that somebody should be able to code some kind of sync for the PIM programs that exist for the opensource Maemo (Nokia's brand of embedded Linux, which also was used on the N770) -- however, I'm not sure whether such programs, with Mac OS X or Windows synching capabilities would match the gnu-ethos of this product.
A few things I can suggest, based on my experience:
1) Invest in a good case for this device. And if you are going to use it as a media player at the gym, be careful that the device for which you forked over four hundred clams doesn't go flying. Mine did, suffered nary a scratch (thanks to a solid build quality) -- but this thing has a gorgeous screen that just seems to cry out "crack me!"
2) Invest in bluetooth keyboard for writing long emails. The Nokia SU-8W was my weapon of choice. It's pretty good too -- I have a few nitpicks, though:
The Fn button is needed to activate the number keys (which are basically merged with the top row of the "QWERTY" row of keys (Q=1, W=2, etc). Once you click on Fn it stays on -- which can be a bit maddening at first. because if you subsequently hit those letter keys, they will still appear as numbers until you deactivate the Fn. You might prefer another keyboard, but I've since grown used to this one.Read more ›
You succumbed to an early case of iPhone lust, but then you started thinking about it: Do you really want your mobile telephone, your iPod, and a small-form Internet tablet all in the same device? What's the battery life going to be like on that bad boy if you're using it for all three purposes? Do you really want a single point of failure for all three functions?
I already have a nice, rugged, compact cellphone that pulls a great signal and, you know, makes and receives phone calls. That's truly all I want out of a cellphone. It does those things just fine.
I doubt that anyone is going to improve, any time soon, on the form factor, the ease of use, or the bang for the buck of Apple's 8GB iPod Nano. Even Apple.
And I certainly don't have a burning desire to get sucked into an expensive monthly data-rate plan on a two-year contract with AT&T as a precondition of spending $500-700 on an iPhone when it comes out.
But, you know, the "Internet device in the small-but-usable" form factor is still very attractive. Cellphone screens are just too small for extended Internet use, but there are times when you don't want to be lugging a laptop around with you.
The clever Finns at Nokia have an answer to this dilemma: the N800 Internet Tablet.Read more ›
The toy is just a dream. It has the best screen I have ever seen. Just look, it has a better resolution than a desktop I used just 5 years ago! The picture is beutiful. You can scale the image very easily by +/- buttons. The software is also very useful. Internet browser is fast and handy. Especially if you use it in full screen mode.
Nokia has probably the best antenna engineers in the world. Such a small device has a better network detection than my PowerMac and any other laptops I tried. It detects even 4 additional networks around my house locating on 1 acre of land (hey, neighbors, always protect your WiFi with a password!) which my laptop cannot.
And yess! It is a normal Linux device. I was able to get terminal on it, gain root access and finally ssh to the device from my PowerMac and from my Linux box. I was able to install software I like. And yes, it is free as well. I also write my own software and can do whatever I want. However, you do not have to be a Linux geek to enjoy the device. It is a good computer even without it.
Nokia N800 supports many languages as well. I was able to type Russian. It also has a writing recognision system for all available languages.
The device is pretty fast. It contains 330 MHz TI processor in it.Read more ›
