Review: Nokia N800 now with Skype

,----[ Quote ]
| While I enjoyed using the Nokia N800 prior to the firmware upgrade, once
| having Skype installed made the unit made the Nokia N800 an almost
| indispensable tool carry around. Having the ability to make phone calls
| anywhere in the world from any location that has wireless internet was neat.
| Furthermore with a SkypeIn plan you can easily receive phone calls from just
| about any place in the world that has wifi. The addition of having Skype made
| the Nokia N800 a near cellphone like device.

Reviewers converge on new Nokia Internet tablet

,----[ Quote ]
| The N800 shipped Jan. 6 without a peep -- let alone a press release
| -- from Nokia. Nonetheless, the device seems to be attracting more
| interest, at least from the fourth estate, than did the arguably
| more revolutionary 770 Internet tablet from which it evolved.

| step-up from the 770. However, its hardware is noticeably better.
| * I'm glad to see that Nokia seems committed to making its
| Internet Tablet line the best that it can be.
