[8 January] The Nokia N800 quietly went on sale in the US for US$399.99 over the last weekend and sighting reports were all over the Net for the past couple days. So far the listed stats aren’t too impressive:

Model name: N800

CPU speed: 320 Mhz
OS: Tablet 0S 2007 / Maemo / Linux
Screen Size: 4.1 inches
Screen Resolution: 800×480
RAM: 128 MB
Flash: 256 MB

SD card slot x2
Headset i/f (Mic+Line)

WLAN details

PAN details

Included accessories
Built-in camera.
Soft Case
Stereo speakers

Ring Nokia posted some very nice unboxing pictures and I’m linking it here. If you want more information on this baby, check out John Tokash’s latest reviews and thoughts at his blog, http://blog.tokash.org. The following YouTube vid is from him as well. Talking about YouTube, John also mentioned that YouTube videos play at a brutal 1 or 2 frames per second, major bummer.

[23 February] MobileTechReview gave N800 4 out of 5 stars, review here.

  4. Expansys (http://www.expansys.com.hk/) sells them imported from the UK, but at a slightly inflated price of HK$3795. I have mine on order.

    The N800 doesn’t officially support Chinese/Japanese text in the Opera web browser. There were some hacks to enable this for the N770 predecessor.
