View Full Version : So what about web based applications?
02-09-2007, 02:41 PM
I see a lot of posts about apps to load on an 880 - but I have yet to see any discussion of how the 880 handles the explosion of web based applications. Seems to me that this is where the power of the device might be - as long as you always have a wireless connection.
Can anyone comment on how well the device works with:
- 30 Boxes
- Remember the Milk
- Google Reader
- Google Docs and Spreadsheets
- Wordpress as an admin
- Delicious, Magnolia, Blink and / or shadows
- Google or Yahoo calendar
You get the idea. I'd love to know if those apps work - and how well.
Thanks for any info!

Opera does not work with any of the online office suites. I don't know anything about the others.

Digg and delicious work well. Gmail and google homepage work.
Google reader somewhat works but there is also readermini.com. For gcal check out:

Agree that the power of the N800 might be in web-based applications. But besides applications, the N800 can also be a very handy mobile platform for casual web-based Flash games. Currently, most web-based games are not optimized for the N800. The only website I know that caters for mobile devices like the N800 is http://www.gamoku.com

Wordpress 2.1 admin works fine too. Havent had a single issue and can add and manage posts just fine, which is pretty sweet.

Protopage seems to work and you can customize with a different user name a page especially designed for your tablet. Protopage can pull in pages from other sites to view on a single Protopage -- a nifty alternative to tabs.

Anyone tried www.zimbra.com yet?

Because I'm Wiki happy!

Good start, spy.

30 Boxes works fairly well on the N800. However, GCal might, or might not show everything. Most of the calenders that I have setup in GCal don't even display.
As everyone else has said in other posts, Google Docs and Sheets do not work, but this is an issue for Google and Opera to work out.
I look at digg several times a day with my N800, but you will need to scroll sideways if you want to see those frames.
I'll look into the others.
