Basically like the N800, only "slimmer" and more "mainstream" design. Only major difference between this and our beloved N800 tablets (even though I own an N810, I had an N800 before), is that it's basically a phone. Not interested. If I wanted a phone, I'd get a phone.

Mind you, upon first seeing it, not knowing any of the specs, I said I wanted it. After reading, I changed my mind. :/

I'd appreciate it if my 800 were also a phone, so long as the battery lasted all day. One less thing to drag along.

Well, there's also the missing D-pad, and shortage of other buttons... Yeah, the big thing it has going for it, over, say, the SmartQ 5, is that it is indeed a phone (for those of us who do want a phone). But I'm not sure how many people can actually use an 800 MHz CDMA phone, anyway; I know I can't.

I guess the 2 Mpx (the 3.2 is interpolated) camera is a reasonable enhancement, particularly over the N810's non-rotating camera, but not enough to make me trade in my keyboard and D-pad. Guess I'll wait for the N900 -- they can't have ditched the D-pad, right?

Only one card slot so not a good replacement for the n800...

Looks more like a maemo + moblin hybrid, not android, as mentioned in the video.

EDIT: The more I look at it, it looks more like a pure Moblin MID.

I think the interviewer was just getting a bit mixed up, there seemed to be some language difficulty at play.

PXA320 way not as fast as the OMAP3 in N900.

Wow... I wish my N810 had that battery life! Of course, the battery might be contributing to the big size of the tablet, but the device does boast some pretty good specs. Anyone know how the CPU performs against the OMAPs?

I posted a video-review of it at http://armdevices.net/2009/12/06/opt...-video-review/

Please check it out, and please help me spread it around to some relevant technology news blogs!

I submitted it to http://slashdot.org/submission/11292...evice-reviewed
