PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Many a geek was excited when Nokia announced the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet in late 2005. Its form factor, functionality, and price indicated to me that my dream device had arrived. When I finally purchased one and reviewed it, my dreams were dashed. While attractive, the Nokia 770 was underpowered, leading to sluggish performance. The menu navigation was not thought out well, and some of the applications felt unfinished. With little advance notice, Nokia released the 770's successor at the beginning of 2007, the Nokia N800. Is it powerful enough to rekindle the fires of gadget lust or will it be another heartbreaker?"

If I'm not mistaken, slower chips use less electricity, less battery. Hence a longer battery life with the same battery capacity. So I'd guess Nokia was trying to find a sweet spot between CPU power and battery life.

I agree with the rest of your comment - based on the reviews, the device could use some more polish.
