TouchArcade

This is a pretty good pinball table and a nice bit of fanservice for the Ghostbusters crowd, delivered in possibly the worst, ill-fitting pay model they could have chosen. I sincerely hope this is a one-off and not a sign of Farsight's future way of doing business, because while I love many things f...

In all honesty, unless you are committed to making handheld internet video calls, the N800 might not be worth the upgrade for current 770 users. For new users though, the Nokia N800 is a great device that will out-perform the 770 for just a bit more money. I still cannot see an Internet Tablet gaini...

Until you use it, Nokia's N800 Internet Tablet seems impressive. Designed to let you surf the Web and access e-mail while on the go, the $400 device has a svelte design and a strong collection of software. Ultimately, however, working with the N800 is a frustrating experience. Despite offering incre...

This is a pretty good pinball table and a nice bit of fanservice for the Ghostbusters crowd, delivered in possibly the worst, ill-fitting pay model they could have chosen. I sincerely hope this is a one-off and not a sign of Farsight's future way of doing business, because while I love many things from the 80s, like pinball and Dan Akroyd's acting career, one of the things I'm okay leaving behind is going broke trying to master a pinball table. If you dig the Ghostbusters, by all means, give this a download. It doesn't cost you anything to try it out and play it here and there. If you're just a pinball fan, go ahead and load up Haunted House again. There's not enough new here to make it worth dealing with the hassle of the token system and its absurd wait times.

There's something refreshing about a portable device that doesn't try to be everything-and instead focuses on a couple of key features. Such is the case with Nokia's second-generation N800 Internet Tablet. It was designed to provide a near-desktop-quality Web browsing experience through a Wi-Fi connection that's easy to set up. It also lets you stay in touch through Voice-over-IP calling with Google Talk, e-mail, instant messaging, and even video calls. Although some users might find its features too pared down and its price a little high, it's still a handy device for surfing the Web.

In all honesty, unless you are committed to making handheld internet video calls, the N800 might not be worth the upgrade for current 770 users. For new users though, the Nokia N800 is a great device that will out-perform the 770 for just a bit more money. I still cannot see an Internet Tablet gaining mass-market adoption at this point in time, as I don't know whether the functionality it provides justifies the cost, but I do love having the N800 around, and have become quite attached to it. If you have the money to spare, the Nokia N800 is great.

Nokia N800 Internet Tablet is a truly well operating all-in-one Internet-multimedia product, incorporating numerous and properly developed options. It sports a large and beautiful display that ensures the pleasure while viewing Internet pages or watching videos. In addition the open-source core provides for its great flexibility that makes us expect more and more future applications for this operating system. We point out that its main shortcoming is the inability to adequately utilize Bluetooth for audio, which is a must for a lot of people!

Until you use it, Nokia's N800 Internet Tablet seems impressive. Designed to let you surf the Web and access e-mail while on the go, the $400 device has a svelte design and a strong collection of software. Ultimately, however, working with the N800 is a frustrating experience. Despite offering incremental improvements in form and software over its predecessor, the Nokia N800 fails to make a compelling case for itself. Neither a PDA nor a cell phone nor a UMPC, the device is ultimately just a $400 toy for technology enthusiasts.

The Nokia N800 Internet Tablet has integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for accessing the Web on the go and comes with an outstanding browser. It also features a built-in Webcam, a sleeker design, a gorgeous screen, and improved performance. Other goodies include VoIP support, instant messaging, an RSS news reader, a media player, and dual expansion slots. Unfortunately, the video playback on the N800 was subpar, and there is no PC synchronization. The N800 also relies solely on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity.
Though it won't appeal to the masses quite yet, the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet is a nice, portable device for on-the-go Web browsing, and it has some worthy upgrades.

A definite improvement on its predecessor, but it's still lacking an appeal for a wider audience

from ZDNet

We can’t help liking the N800, and it's certainly a significant step forward from its predecessor. However, liking a device and seeing a market for it are two different things. Out of the box, the N800 has relatively little allure for the professional user: there's no way to view, edit or create business documents, no real PIM functionality and no PC synchronisation. Even the VoIP capability is hampered by the current lack of a Skype client — although this is expected by the middle of the year...

We can’t help liking the N800, and it's certainly a significant step forward from its predecessor. However, liking a device and seeing a market for it are two different things. Out of the box, the N800 has relatively little allure for the professional user: there's no way to view, edit or create business documents, no real PIM functionality and no PC synchronisation. Even the VoIP capability is hampered by the current lack of a Skype client — although this is expected by the middle of the year.

For a wider audience, the N800’s appeal is limited by its reliance on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for internet connectivity, and by its disappointing battery life.
