@LiLo,

I did not mean to be disrespectful. My comment was a well meant advice, please take it as it is. I don't know anything about you except how you present yourself. If u rite lik diz, then you come accross as someone who
a) doesn't know better; or
b) thinks it's cool to write like that.
Your "about me" line suggests that English is your first language, which should eliminate a), leaving only b).

Sorry about the off-topic diversion, I'll shut up now.

Wish I still had a machine with Win7, Vista or XP. All I have are machines running OSX, Ubuntu and Win8. I'll see if I can pick up a cheapo XP laptop at the local recycle center.

bacchh! don't give it a second thought lilo...it's all good.
And ya...the n800 "is all that" so-to-speak...you can do a lot of stuff with it. Gotta start somewhere....and if you want to learn how to have more control over the devices corps. want you to buy...you have an opportunity. If you want ...in the future...to have more choice than than narrow options and being fed what corps offer...you have an opportunity with the n800.
For me...wayyy back in the day ....it was before the commodore 64...tape cassette drives and having to write code !...
Left the computer world there...came back in 2003...like freakin rip-van-winkle ...saw the writing on the wall...Had to learn everything quick...Stupid me I pick windows....2007 discovered Nokia tablets...2008 realized I REALLY should have learned Linux...so...got mah lurnin and edumacation proper done
So I think of my self more as the crazy-spagetti-sieve-on-the-head-mad-scientist-steampunker-yet-with-cooler-clothes-and-gadgets-that-ACTUALLY-do-things kinda-guy
but it wasn't so long ago that I knew absolutely nothing.
In my own field of work (not maemo oriented at all) I think I am something pretty good....but here ...with these gurus and magicians...I still think I know very little compared to them...and I'm no slouch...frankly all you need is time and curiosity and you will quickly become fascinated with what you can do with these devices.

OSX, 'Buntu, and WIN8 ....Wow man ...well 2 and 1/2 out of 3 ain't bad... (I give buntu 1/2) ....ooops!!! got that backwards
I MEANT 1/2 out of three isn't bad XD
Ya I'd just use xp...least hassle compared to vist/win7/win8.

BTW I'm not M$ hatin'..... I got a serious softspot for 98SE ...one of the finest M$ platforms ever...and I LOVE XP Tablet edition for doing my graphic work on...one of the best things ever M$ will do is when they finally cut XP loose....be lot more fun then.
I'm grudgingly coming around to almost liking win7...but I draw the line at what win8 is...don't like it at all

Ach pichlo don't be like that man...it's all cool....this topic seems to have become a general chat..discussion on a variety of topics from buy and sell...to what devices can do ...to geo-politico haha's to proper grammar (which I must admit I highly appreciate and do (for the most part) hold standards and expect them from others as well)
....to flashing probs on the devices...to poke-poking in the ribs 'bout operating systems ...Heck the original post is about storage cap. on the n800....but I don't care...It's just good to see chatter at this end of the pool again
So ...honest pichlo ......don't shut up....it's all good
And lilo...(finger-wagging tsk-tsk time) I do admit... I did have to pull out my modern-abbreviated-slang dictionary there at first

I appreciate u explaining that u didn't mean to be disrespectful, pichlo. I just don't go telling strangers how to conduct themselves online or in any other scenario..especially if I'm about to bring a new topic ( a person's choice to abbreviate and use slang while on their phone or tablet) to an online forum about tech stuff...Your first comment certainly didn't have the same amiable tone our Canadian friend's comments have. There's ways to be assertive without being perceived as arrogant. However, u simply cannot expect everyone to meet ur parlance standards in here. If this were a job interview or the dinner table at my parent's, u can rest assured that I would conduct myself adequately. But it ain't foo! (joking) Nah, I'm just chillin here trying to get some info. So, I think ur comment was, as someone else said earlier, unnecessary. But, hey, the whole thing proved to be entertaining for some.lol ...Sorry about the slang dictionary, endsormeans...don't think it was too heavy tho.lol..
Just out of curiosity, pichlo: What part of the UK r u from? peace & love man

Welllll...normal free skype is comp to comp....and instead of just perpetually putting money into your account to call friends....I suggest spending the 30$ a yr for unlimited North America wide....or around 100$ a yr for unlimited Worldwide....then you can not only call computers, but cell and homephone numbers too. Great in a pinch..with skypeout ....yup you can call your buds ...if you are lucky enough to live in an area that enables a skypein phone# even better....that means you can receive PHONE calls or have em go to voice mail...for about 10 or so bucks a month...I think...may be a little more or less.......

BTW.....should check out the solio with the 3 cell fold out...works great with n800....cheap on ebay too....built in battery holds a full charge for a yr. and can charge a n800 from an exhausted battery state...and it solar charges ...best to suction-cup-it to a (car)window or stand it up...and fully charged solio hooked up to a fully charged n800 running during the day means that even though you are draining the solio battery it is also charging off sun/day light during use...then after a day of use with daylight diminishing it starts draining the solio battery to feed the n800 battery and finally you are running on n800 battery alone...looong playtime ...and you can charge the solio via usb quick too in a pinch to ready for emergency or travel prep......been around for yrs. I got 2 ....work great...So say power goes out...calamity strikes...its all good...you got music, movies, books, games, and connectivity...while everyone else is still sitting in the dark.

You can also vidchat with the n800

And gps ..yup
THESE are the least of the things you can do with it.

rdesktop..check it out.....REMOTE computer access

MULTIPLE...as in many options of Operating Systems
Best...other than maemo... is Easy Debian...you can play with nitdroid (Nokia Internet Tablet Android OS)
And lotsa others.

Lilo...one of (many) the most important thing to remember is this.
The Maemo operating system and the devices n770/n800/n810/n900 and the software was handed by Nokia over to OUR community....No corp. controls us anymore ...this means that we maintain the stuff....enhance...write programs...etc. We help one another. If software becomes screwwy with the ever changing internet....community members work on fixes....not like corps that tend to start abandoning device support not long after they release it.

No prob lilo....There is just way too much to say about how good the n800 is....better for you to read and try stuff and find out.
The n800 is a good affordable practice model....since once you really dive deep and experiment with it....you'll love what it can do.... ps - check out the neo900 thread too...
