My New Toy (Nokia N800 Internet Tablet)

Well, I just received my newest gadget today run on, yep you guessed it, Linux. It is the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet. It is not a mobile phone but you can make calls using VoIP with Skype. You even get a three-month voucher from Skype to make Computer to Telephone calls πŸ™‚ One reason why I bought the Nokia N800 was because I tired of hauling my Thinkpad on my motorbike when I needed to meet people. The Nokia N800 fits into my motorbike seat. No need to worry about someone stealing my laptop now πŸ™‚

You can get a GPS kit for the Nokia N800. I will purchase it later when I travel more outside of Vietnam. It would be nice to find a way to mount this device on my motorbike (just pray nobody swipes it).

Here are a couple good reviews for the Nokia N800:

  2. engadget Review

I am not sure when it will be available in Vietnam.

  • It is the only mobile gadget in my consideration set after iPhone πŸ™‚

  • I had two iPhones in possession from the US to Vietnam today. I bought one for myself but decided to let a friend buy it. I did not like the iPhone but I love the Nokia N800 πŸ™‚

    Hi Kevin:

    I have just received the n800 to try out from a friend. However, cannot connect to internet with bluetooth pairing with my regular phone. both devices see and pair properly. the problem seems to be that I don’t know the dial up number for Vinaphone. Have you encountered issue and found answer? thanks.


  • Okay, you need to use MMS on your cell phone. Take it to any cell phone shop and they should be able to set up MMS or GPRS for your phone and it should work.
