So obsolete - too bad
on March 4, 2014
I bought this item because I wanted a tablet with a Linus operating system. This seemed to be the only option.
In its day, 2007-2008, this little tablet would have been a five star wonder. Beautifully made, with a brushed aluminum case, it is lovely to look at. And it found both my home secure WPA2 and my secure Virgin Mobile MiFi right away. But the main function of this little Linux tablet is to browse the Internet. It has a MicroB Mozilla browser, but it is not equipped to handle today's web pages, which have too many elements. The best thing one can say about the browser is that it will clear cache, cookies etc., so they don't hang around.
I tried to download Opera Mobile 10.1. I couldn't after multiple attempts in many places. The problem seemed to be that to download and install an application, one first has to have the installer files on the tablet. In every case that I tried, Opera, various games, etc. the Nokia installer files were no longer in the Nokia Linux repositories where they were supposed to be. So I gave up and use the browser with some mobile phone web pages. The Guardian, Washington Post, Weather Underground, The Weather Chanel and the National Weather Service mobile sites all work fine.
And so does the regular Reciva Radio web site. This tablet is a nice MP3 player, and it will play such radio streams very well. And if you play your favorite radio station on this machine, keep the battery in and plug it in the wall. It charges as it plays.
But the best thing to do if you want a Linux tablet is to wait until the next one is built...
