Nokia N800 As an EBook Reader Using FBReader

,----[ Quote ]
| Though N800 is an Internet Tablet, it can serve as a very good ebook reader
| too, for those casual/semi-serious readers who don’t want to invest in a
| stand-alone ebook reader. At its screen size and resolution, reading ebooks
| is extremely pleasing on the eye. It supports HTML, PDF, etc formats out of
| the box; but what truly makes it such a good candidate to be used as an ebook
| reader is the excellent(read Free) ebook reader software available for it
| called FBReader. * * *

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. * * *
