The N800

I was one of the fortunate individuals to get a developer discount code for the Nokia N800.

It’s been a few days since receiving the device, and I have had it with me ever since. The tablet does have a few quirks, but I’ve put it to good use as an ebook reader, a ‘Net radio device, and as little portable Linux geek toy. Of course, having a nice Web browser and IM client in my pocket, ready to go, has also been great.

Just to let you all know how much this thing has been in use, I’ll say this: The entire blog post you’ve been reading (including this right now) was written on my N800.

Thanks, Tuomas and Nokia!

    I should be an n800 in the mail in the next day or two and the one thing I already know I’ll want is Tango icons. Are icon themes even possible?

    Brad: Icon themes are possible, but there’s currently no real way to switch the themes in the UI.

    There’s been lots of talk about Tangoification of the UI, and I’m planning on helping out with the effort. Also, I want to make a nice theme too sometime. (Tuomas’ theme is really nice and simple, by-the-way.)
