    Now that Nokia has added a keyboard to its Internet Tablet line I find it even more tempting.

    And if that wasn't enough, I expect there to be a WiMax version of this device to be on the market before too much longer, probably before the middle of next year. That will make it even more impressive.

    I agree Ed. It really is impressive. If the software is more mature, then I can really see Nokia making solid inroads with this iteration.

    This device would be sweeter if it just had a Office Suite, I'm dying for it to have one. The Screen was always good for it, now it has a keyboard, I- I feel like Nokia is laughing at me. :p

    I'd be interested to see how Google's Docs & Spreadsheets will work on it. If it runs well, an "on board" Office suite won't really be necessary.

    Nice, keyboard and Linux. But it needs one more thing: a EVDO or EDGE modem.

    I was just going to say the same thing, well, EVDO Rev A or higher speed HSDPA, actually. For those who also want a more traditional cell phone and don't want to pay extra data fees, just switch the GSM card or don't bother enabling EVDO with a separate account. Personally, when I'm not near a hot spot, I'd hate to be dependent on also having a separate cell phone around. Also, if it were Windows Mobile with a 3.5" HVGA screen, the iPhone would be dead in the water.

    That thing looks pretty cool. D-pad might be a little awkward for somebody who's right handed, but you gotta admire the screen.

    Depending on the way the browser has been updated, and the support from the online apps, doing an online office suite should be more than doable (and just flat out done IMO).

    A lot about this is nice, but just says it was a small but needed update. I wonder if the new OS was another reason that an updated device was needed. Not that I am complaining that software is pushing the hardware, but its notable.

    HOpefully, BT keyboard support is better, because this is a mobile office piece just waiting to happen.

    I am very impressed by the video. Is it a touchscreen?

    The Tapwave Zodiac is intended to be used in landscape mode and has the joystick (which emulates a 5 way pad) on the left. I'm right handed and had no problems dealing with it. I don't see that as a big issue for the Nokia.

    I'm amused. As I understand it, the original Nokia 770 was something of a "stealth" project at Nokia. Management wore cell phone blinders, and the developers had to beg, borrow, or steal the resources to develop it, and do it largely on their own time. They also adopted the open source model for the OS, which provided speed bumps, as it's antithetical to normal corporate software development models.

    I subsequently found out Nokia couldn't make the 770 fast enough to meet demand, and it has spawned the 800 and now the 810 as successors.

    Take a look at http://www.maemo.org for current development efforts. That's the main site for OS and application development for the Nokia devices, and a lot of interesting things are out there or in preparation.

    I meant the screen size and resolution. I haven't seen any videos about this device. ;)

    If only I could get the part number for that LCM.

    I'm left-handed, and actually I'm using a Lifedrive. I much prefer to have the pads, or in general, buttons, tho the right side, so I can keep the unit in landscape mode with my right hand, and press buttons, or use teh d-pad, with mi right thumb. And use the stylo with left hand
