Nokia updates its internet tablet
Nokia has updated its Linux-based internet tablet range with the N800. The device replaces the N770.
The device adds faster performance, full screen Qwerty keyboard, better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity and an integrated web camera. The N800 is priced at EUR400 (£270).
At the UK launch, Nokia's group business director for multimedia Andrew Connell said sales efforts would be 'focused heavily on the UK and US markets'.
The N800 will be available at independent retailers including John Lewis, DSG and Comet, as well as online channels including Play.com. Connell told Mobile that Nokia 'hoped to work with retailers which sell a huge amount of electronics – they are a good place for technical devices'.
Through a partnership with The Cloud, Nokia is giving UK users free access to 7,500 public WiFi hotspots including airports and stations for a month.
