Smile New Nokia internet tablet device

Engadget reports:

Well, we don't really have a whole lot to tell you, but our pals at the Federal Communications Commission have all but confirmed the existence of what appears to be the new Nokia internet tablet (870? 880?). The FCC docs don't really tell us very much, other than that Nokia is releasing something later on down the road. So there you go, if you've got nothing better to do this weekend and have trouble sleeping, page after page of FCC filings ought to do the trick.

Is this the rumored successor of the 770 supposedly with embedded GPS?

As I told elsewhere, I am using the Nokia 770 Ad-Hoc mode as a way to have a fast screen (and Keyboard) in the iLiad, or a large screen in the Nokia if you prefer. Very synergetic products, and fully wireless.

Whoa! Already available and in stock! I must confess I'm tempted. 400 euro is still relatively expensive, though. One major issue that kept me from buying the 770 was the slowness, but the CPU and RAM increase should address that concern. Curious about the battery life.

I just bought the N800 from nokia.com. I currently own the 770 and was very satisfied with it. Btw.. I returned the sony reader so i could buy the N800.

Once I get the device I will post some screenshots and compare these devices.

Hello everyone, this is my first post. Well, I am excited about the Nokia 800 and I think I am going to get one. I am planning a long trip backpacking to many countries in the next year, and the weight of the guidebooks alone was going to be over 4 kilograms (and I travel light!). The Nokia 800 seemed like a great solution for many issues that I anticipated while traveling -- a reader for basic non-DRM'ed mobile e-reading, RSS feeds, secure internet access with good browsing experience, picture organizer, possibly GPS, casual multimedia, gaming, emails, etc. Skype also announced they are releasing software for the Nokia 800 in the first half of this year which is something else I was after, and there is already a non-Skype videophone solution for it.

Anyway, I searched everywhere for good e-book travel guides and there is very little out there. I researched how I might acquire travel guidebooks along the way and this is very hit and miss in non-English speaking countries. I even contacted one major publisher -- they said they are working on a solution (provided no details except to say will probably be DRM'ed) but it is not ready yet. Now I am planning to just purchase them all here in the US, scan them all in before my trip, and use the Nokia 800 for yet another task, as a guidebook reader

I have been reading a lot of posts here recently to try to get the hang of the workflow for converting a dense travel book to a set of HTML-embedded images and probably also an OCR'ed text, formats that seem appropriate for the Nokia 800. It will definitely take me some more time to get the hang of all that! But I thank those that have posted their experiences, especially Liviu. Until I read that information, I was not confident in the ability to read scanned books on the Nokia device.

I was initially excited about the Sony Reader. But it is too big for my special use while traveling overseas (issue of theft by attracting attention, size, weight, I just can't pocket it). I am also disappointed by the Sony Connect store content and their travel guidebook section is almost non-existent -- too bad, because travel content lends itself to DRM'ing since its useful lifespan is just 2-3 years and it is a true vertical market for e-books since book weight is a big issue for many travelers. Most of my reading nowadays is really on-line content, anyway, like the Wall Street Journal, forums, news, etc., so between that and non-DRM'ed books, I am hoping that the Nokia device can also meet my casual non-traveler reader needs, as well.

By the way, I can't speak highly enough about this site. This is what the internet is all about. Here we have a relatively new topic, new and rapidly changing technology, and a core cadre of early adopters all politely exchanging useful information on what will hopefully someday soon be mainstream technology. Nice work.

I was concerned about that too -- sometimes you just can't really avoid leaving things lying about. As a result of some discussion around here, I settled on the hollow book method for both casual protection and camouflage purposes (for those occasions when this magnificent beast just isn't appropriate). I expect a hollow book would work for whatever device you end up with, so I figured I'd point it out.

It's really not difficult to make one, especially with these http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...t instructions.

Not my idea, I take no credit for it, only for recognizing a good idea when I see one.
