Nokia N810 Internet Tablet

02Nov07


Although the N810 has no cell phone features itself, it can connect over Bluetooth to a cell phone, so (if your cell phone and calling plan allow it) you could browse the Internet, send email, etc from the N810, but only take the small cell phone with you if you just want to make calls.

The N810 can also make phone calls over the data connection using either Skype or Gizmo, the latter of which also offers video calls from the small built-in camera. This might be useful if you need to make a lot of calls and have an unlimited data plan but only limited minutes.

The N810 also includes a good selection of software: there’s a Mozilla based web browser, music and video player software, built in email client and Nokia’s own mapping application. This can work with the integrated GPS receiver, and maps for North America are included, so you don’t have to go online to work out where you are. Spoken turn by turn directions do require a subscription to Nokia’s map service and an Internet connection, though.

The first thing you notice about the N810 is that it has a physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard (see the photo in the Engadget article) unlike its touchscreen only devices that preceded it. At $479 it should make for an interesting race between the N810 and the Asustek Eee PC. The N810 doesn’t have has much storage as the top-end Eee (although you can insert an SD flash card for more storage), but it is smaller and lighter. The $1000+ UMPCs based on Microsoft Windows need to get into the $500 price range if they intend to compete in the nano-scale mobile market.
