Unboxing and First Impressions – Nokia N810

[26 November] Found a great unboxing and first impression article on the Nokia N810 Tablet over at ARS Technica with some nice pics. Link here. The author’s verdict on it –

“Overall, I think that the N810 is a relatively impressive device, but the mediocrity of the built-in keyboard and the limitations of the free GPS software detract from the value of the most significant changes between the N800 and the N810. The N810 is still a very good product, but not enough to justify the $450 price tag when the N800 can be purchased for under $250. Potential N810 buyers are probably better off waiting. Those who regard the built-in GPS as a killer feature should also keep in mind that they will have to pay more for the full version of the WayFarer software in order to really make full use of the N810’s GPS capabilities.”

[Updated – 30 November] Another great unboxing video of the Nokia N810 from absolon3.

[Updated – 8 December] jkkmobile published the hands on with the Nokia N810 article. His take – it’s a no-buy. Read on and see if you agree or not. Bonus: some nice side-to-side comparison pics with the Everun.

[Updated – 10 December] tnkgrl Mobile ran an article on the comparison between the Nokia N800 and N810, link here.
