PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia today introduced the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet, signifying a new phase in portable internet communication. Sporting Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g connectivity, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a full-fledged web browser, there's only one thing missing: WiMAX. However, a WiMAX version of the N810 will be coming next year. In the meantime, the N810's Wi-Fi connectivity will provide Internet access through hotspots as well as home and office networks, including via Boingo Mobile. Applications compiled for the previous two Internet Tablet models will not be compatible with this one. This hurt the N800 a lot too, because most developers didn't care to re-compile their apps as they kept their N770. Hopefully this is the last time Nokia breaks compatibility.

Are you sure? Link?

I read OSnews every night on it and use it as a remote (with ReMoot) to remote control my HTPC.

Anyway, the only thing I miss on my N800 is a keyboard... I really can't buy a new one just for that, or can I? ;) The N810 is even more expensive...

btw. Why does OSnews ( http://www4.osnews.com ) present a different layout to the N800 than other browsers. (No login fields etc?)

Nokia has apparently went on record on more than one occassion about this, I can't spot a direct quote with a name attached at this time. But Nokia has a good history of being community friendly, and I don't think they would break and obselete a break compatibility with the N800 right out the gate with only a minor version number change...N800 to N810 is one thing, N770 to N810 is another.

I imagine the details should be on maemo.org within the next couple days as it runs the new v4

http://maemo.org/news/announcements/view/1192637131.html states that it is fully compatible with N800.

as the N810 is 99% the same hardware as the N800, it should work like a charm.

as for the layout, i think osnews have been set so that if the browser identifier say something with maemo (or maybe nokia?) in it you get the more mobile friendly version.

I picked up the bluetooth iGo (formerly Think Outside) slim folding keyboard. It's fantastically small and sexy looking but the number row is combined into the qwerty letter row with a function button to access them which sucks for typeing. I'd recommend having a look at the iGo larger bluetooth keyboard though; it looks like a direct remake of the old Palm keyboard that folded into it's own little square casing. I'm actualy tempted to ebay the sexy slim one just to afford the larter one with the fourth row of keys.
