Got A Nokia N800

Posted 02-04-2007 at 03:41 AM by blink56k

Today I bit the bullet and got a Nokia N800 tablet from J&R, a couple of months too early for my birthday.

Impressions so far:
-Like has been said before, the screen resolution/color/brightness is beautiful
-Browsing/general UI is fast!
-Excellent Wi-Fi Range
-Mp3 player/Video Player/Web Browser/Organizer all in one...pretty awesome. I was afraid the video quality would be choppy (even with the demo video) but I found it pretty crisp and smooth.

Things I don't like/am worried about
-Videos may generally play smoothly, but as you know, YouTube will laugh in your face.
-My particular unit seemed to have a smudge/loose spot on the lower left corner of the screen (think of those etch a sketch screens when they have those spots you can't write on anymore or just look like a tiny but fugly little bright circle)
-I liked the look of the 770 before it. Especially the protective cover.

The webcam is nice, but I'm still trying to figure out how/if I can take still pictures/short videos with it (if not, then the guy at the store lied to me).

Other concerns: not much software available for it yet
Would be nice to know how to install:
-Gaim client
-VPNC client to connect to college network

Here are some quick (read: bad quality] shots:
