I had the chance to play with client Nokia's new N800 Internet Tablet over dinner last night and is it ever one sweet device.
It's not a phone. It's a Linux appliance, and already based on the reports I'm hearing, the N800 is the largest selling Linux desktop around, even though it's shirt pocket or purse size computer.
Unlike the Nokia 770, this new and improved model has more of a hand weight feel and looks sharp. It works with GizmoProject today and has a built in video camera for real time video. What's more it works with REAL's music service, Rhapsody and has more processing speed and memory. Skype for it comes out in the second quarter of this year so until then Gizmo and GoogleTalk will be how people talk with it.
With the number of new applications coming out for it this is rapidly becoming the geek crowds cool tool.
