It may take a while before you could get your hands on one, though:

That looks so cute !!! Somebody cross-bred an NES controller with an n810 !!!

It's atom based so should run linux. They are willing to sell it without Windows though, so it would be interesting to see what it came down to.

Other than that I don't know of anything closer than the N900. the Dell streak, and the archos units are interesting, but do not have physical keyboards, and I miss the keyboard even when I use ny N800!
That looks really sweet ...
Totally useless though if it won't run linux :-[

It's an interesting topic/question and one that I keep coming back to.
The M528 seems interesting but it's now a 2+ year old device and if you go to gigabyte's homepage it's listed under the 'Legacy' category so not sure what to make out of that.

If it was available in the US today at a reasonable price I would, however, still be interested.

Anyone know of ANY other wifi-enabled touchscreen devices without phone but with a h/w keyboard like the N810 - that can run Android or Ubuntu?

yeah.
If n810 had more powerfull cpu and a bit more ram and run any other free (without Nokia's licenses) OS, plus IRda and some buttons on the top panel (like n800) - it would be da best MID for me.

There's the EKing S515 with resistive touchscreen..: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7tbC2-kL2U

It looks pretty nice and it can run Ubuntu and has a USB port.

I'm really like the Viliv N5 look though, but not sure if this could run Android or Ubuntu: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wnyynkHh9c

Viliv N5 And UMID BZ run linux, WIFI enabled. You can run the Android live CD ISO too using virtualbox. UMID has 5-6 hrs of WIFI life to boot.

Best to read about such things on here:

http://forum.pocketables.net/forumdisplay.php?f=65

What you are ideally looking for on second thoughts is the Sharp Netwalker which natively runs Ubuntu and can run Android:

I have the s5 but the N5 has a nice keyboard, n5 battery life is much poorer though!

S7 is great, can make calls from it too I think. But I only use pocketable devices mainly!

I think so far the Viliv N5 running Linux would be the closest to a 'new N810' for me.

Been drooling over this for a bit: http://www.dynamism.com/notebooks/viliv-n5.shtml
