The long expected successor of Nokia N800 internet tablet - Nokia N810 made its first official appearance today. It was announced today by the Finnish company at the Web 2.0 Summit 2007 event in San Francisco, California.
Nokia N810 is sporting the same sparkling touchscreen 4.13" display with 800 x 480 pixels resolution we saw in its predecessor. The most exiting upgrade over the former model is the added GPS receiver with preinstalled maps. According to the manufacturer it should be perfectly adequate for navigating your way around. The other great news is that Nokia N810 will have a full hardware QWERTY keyboard which will surely greatly facilitate text input. Unfortunately, the N810 retains the same VGA-only snapper we saw on N800 but this time it's front-mounted.
Nokia N810 Internet tablet
The new internet tablet relies on Wi-Fi or a Bluetooth connection to a mobile phone to get internet access. Although it does allow its user to make internet calls as well as almost any other internet activity you can do from a personal computer it lack mobile phone functionality, meaning that you cannot carry out regular calls on it. This is the only reason we don't add Nokia's internet tablets to our specifications database, despite the abundance of request we receive in our mailbox.
Nokia N810 comes complete with the adequate 2GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 10GB through the memory card slot. The device will start shipping as soon as mid November at an estimated retail price of USD 479 (excluding local taxes).
