If you happen to be attending the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), check out the new, cool stuff from Nokia. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that more people are discovering using the internet on their cell phones everyday. It does take a clever business to run with that reality and develop devices that make mobile web use a pleasure.
At CES Nokia introduced its next generation widescreen Nokia Nseries multimedia computer, the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet. The Tablet is based on Nokia’s desktop Linux based Operating System, which I find a very cool thing. I hate small devices burdoned with a bloated OS. What’s the point? Ya know?
The N800 has a full screen finger qwerty keyboard – very important when one needs to reply to instant messaging and email. The tablet has a very impressive high-resolution – 800×480 pixels – touch screen. It includes Opera8 – I have used various browsers on all sorts of phones and I STILL feel Opera is the best. There’s Internet enhanced navigation with Navicore software. Nokia is developing a cooperation with Skype on Internet Telephony that will allow Skype users to make Internet calls from their Nokia N800. This device also comes with a camera which can be used for video conferences. You can have RealNetworks Rhapsody music service which makes good use of the stereo speakers.
Here’s a cool feature: there’s two internal memory card slots supporting compatible SD, miniSD, microSD, MMC and RS-MMC. Keep connected via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth compatible phones plus WLAN (802.11b/g). These days it’s almost standard that these smart devices also come with USB 2.0 connectivity.
