It was more of a luck that Kuya Migs handed me the N800 which he received for review. N800 is an Internet gadget released by Nokia during the CES in 2007. The N800 Internet Tablet is primarily designed for email and internet applications. It also features several features such as Internet Calling, Internet Radio, RSS Readers and Image viewer.
Aside from the basic features that the Internet tablet has to offer, it can be upgraded and customized for specific applications. A lot of available applications are distributed for free in the internet. The N800 gadget runs on Maemo, a variant of the Debian Linux operating System.
