"Awesome and Open"4.5 starson by Jmiahman
Pros: It's open sourced so applications are free. Constantly improving with software developement. Meets Basic computer internet needs.
Cons: No Still Image capture yet from webcam. Calendar Application not included, but can be installed.
Summary: This is a great little Appliance/PDA/Internet Tablet. It's based off of Debian Linux which is all open sourced. This may not matter to some but when it comes to getting applications and games for free it's a huge deal.
A Few Things I don't Like:
I didn't like how by default there wasn't a calendar application installed. I know this is a internet tablet and not necessarily a PDA device, but the application exists and has been ported already. Why not include it. Also as of right now there's no easy way to capture still images from the WebCam. Also playing youtube is dog slow. However, there are work arounds by using orb2. Also it's rumored that they are working on internet video play back to be smoother.
Some of What I do Like:
I Like how it's based on Linux and Gnome but doesn't feel like Linux. It feels like a Internet tablet. It's funny how "techs" review it and mention nothing about it being Linux, Why? Because you can't really tell. Now I like Linux don't get me wrong but at times Linux can get confusing to a non-tech person, that's where Nokia has excelled Linux in this instance. I also like the resolution of 800x480. You can place your web pages in full screen mode and see the whole page. If the text is to small for you there's an option to zoom in. By accident I dropped mine on the concrete the 3rd day I had it and I picked it back up and all was well. It's light but seems durable. It's also kinda cool that it fits in cases made for the Nintendo DS and the PSP. The N800 isn't really meant to be a PDA and can't sync, but there's application's available to use it as a PDA and with it's two SD slots you can easily transfer files to and from your computer. This device is still a mystery. There's a USB-to-Go chip on it's main board that hasn't been utilized in any way yet along with a FM Radio that Nokia just released a application for. I comes with great innovations like the option to be able to use one of your SD or MMC cards as extra system memory. If this is a route Nokia plans to go with there Mobile devices I can't wait to see what's next!
