Nokia N800 Internet Tablet

 

This sweet Linux handheld needs more applications.

Terrific screen. Elegant design. Excellent Web browser.

No software available for many common tasks.

Nokia N800 (SD/miniSD/microSD/MMC Card, Opera 8)

 

Until you use it, Nokia's N800 Internet Tablet seems impressive. Designed to let you surf the Web and access e-mail while on the go, the $400 device has a svelte design and a strong collection of software. Ultimately, however, working with the N800 is...

Display is crisp and clear ; Offers impressive audio quality

Lacks basic PDA and office apps ; Web pages can be difficult to read

Nokia N800 Internet Tablet

The Nokia N800 Internet Tablet has integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for accessing the Web on the go and comes with an outstanding browser. It also features a built-in Webcam, a sleeker design, a gorgeous screen, and improved performance....

Unfortunately, the video playback on the N800 was subpar, and there is no PC synchronization. The N800 also relies solely on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity.

Though it won't appeal to the masses quite yet, the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet is a nice, portable device for on-the-go Web browsing, and it has some worthy upgrades.

A sleeker design, better Web browsing, and a built-in webcam make this device a good choice for those looking for a full-fidelity Web experience at home and on the go.

Review: Nokia N800 Internet Tablet (Part 2)

 

Picking up where we left off . . .

Although labeled as an internet tablet, the Nokia N800 really defies categorization. Web browsing on the device is certainly more enjoyable and desktop-like than almost anything else in its class (whatever that is), but that's really just a fraction of...

Review: Nokia N800 Internet Tablet (Part 1)

 

The Nokia N800 Internet Tablet is advertised as a handheld device that lets you "take the internet to new places." Its high-resolution widescreen display and simple wireless connectivity solutions work together to enable quick and constant access to...

With it, you can install an unbelievable amount of applications(through catalogs and other resources) directly onto the device and completely independent of a computer. Why?Because the N800 is basically a full-featured Linux computer!

Nokia N800 Internet Tablet: A New Nokia without a Phone

 

I've had the Nokia N800 for a month now, enough to write a very extensive review and that's exactly what I'm going to do, just like my previous N93/N93i

Excellent build quality overall (except for battery compartment) ; Excellent browsing experience on ultra high res-screen ; Feature packed ; Supports Flash in browser ; Excellent stand-bye and operation time ; Screen adjusts itself depending on use of...

Wobbly battery compartment ; Screen almost unreadable in bright outside conditions (typical of touch sensitive screen) ; No Java support in browser ; Does not come with standard software for MSN ; Where’s Skype and voice chatting for MSN ; Has OMAP2...

The N800 is not a phone, but an internet centric device with a much improved design when compared to the 770 internet tablet. The overall build quality is excellent, with a few minor gripes like the loose battery compartment and high screen edges. The...
