Nokia N810 Internet Tablet

Postby orlandotek » Sun Nov 25, 2012 13:16

I picked up a Nokia N810 Internet Tablet at the flea market yesterday.

Is still in the back of my car. Haven't done anything with it yet.

Anyone have any experience with this?

I just got it as a new toy to play with...

Beautiful hardware. Shame Nokia can't make one with up-to-date internals running Android; I'd but one in a heartbeat!

Its not that bad of a little device.

I installed Opera on it which helped and have a lot
of the mobile versions of websites saved.

Thing looks brand new- Not a mark on it.

Just something fun to play with.

I have to give it to this device.

The keyboard is a little bit easier to use than my UX280P.

And, I was very surprised when the native browser was able to
fully handle my college website, including e-mai and the
onsite course (Blackboard) section.

There are much more current browsers on my Samsung Galaxy S3 that
can't handle my college website at all.

Very cool.

think the n810 was precursor to the ipad and android evolution. Suspect if they sold enough n810 then someone would port over or hacks to get android to run on it.

There are several hacks out there to install Android on the N810 up to Froyo.

Personally, I like the OS that is on it.

One thing about the N810 is that it will last me a over 7 hours of using it all day on one
battery charge.

Not even my 10 inch Android tablet can do that.

So, that is something that is great about it.

I have Android on my phone too so I get enough android as it is.

As long as I do not use graphic intensive websites, use mobile versions when available,
the device works very well.

Funny thing, I am going in the opposite direction.

I bought a N810 back in 2008, have been quite a heavy Nokia Internet Tablet user since then.
Just a few days ago I bought a UX280P, also as a toy to play with :)
So far very impressed with the screen quality and the usefulness of this little beatiful device.

As for the N810, you might want to checkout talk.maemo.org , and http://maemo.org/downloads/OS2008/. People are still releasing software for it up to this day!

I would also keep Maemo on it. If you are used to having a full PC on your pocket, Maemo is pretty much the closest thing that currently exists. You have a (admittedly old) full desktop Firefox browser on it; IMHO not even Firefox for Android can match it.

Note that the GPS on the N810 is not very sensitive; you might have lots of problems with it. Besides, there is no up to date commercial mapping software :(

I still have mine! I wish the GPS was better also. And really the only problem I had with it was there just wasn't enough RAM. I just ordered two ux280p's I feel just as excited as I did when I ordered my N810. I miss it. Only reason I don't use it now is because the screen is unresponsive :-(

If they made a new device thats built exactly like the n810 but with updated hardware. I would get it. I was kinda disappointed when I heard they went with windows phone for the new phones... android would have been much more suiting, given their open source background... eh...oh well...
