Nokia 770 is an internet tablet. Its like a PDA, but its running on Linux, Debian, Maemo. Its just like a desktop with linux installed, it can multi task, can download stuff from the net, can listen music, can see video, can blog, can MSN.... It got a large 4.13" screen 800x480 rez. But due to its slow hardware, sometimes things will freeze and all that. Well i got it for only $200 second hand, what more to expect? Its no longer in sale in Singapore btw. I gonna show u some of the features that i like most.
Screen shots are 800x480 in size, resized to fit my blog (thus appearing fuzzy looking), so click on them to see full size.
This is my home page, there is this Google search bar, this RSS feed reader and a clock. Looks like the widgets u get on Mac or Vista isnt it?
This is a typical web browser. On the left side, the Globe icon has got options to web browsing, like opening new window etc etc... The second icon with the two man display options related to your gmail account, like contacts, inbox, new call...The third icon is like your Window's Start button, inside is all the categories and software. The bottom smaller icons are like your Task Bar, each is one application, click to switch applications when multi tasking.
Multi tabs is possible for those who love it on their Firefox. Retaining the same UI, bookmarks, settings, u can switch between Opera or Firefox rendering engine (need extra download). Firefox engine seems faster on N770.
Full screen view.
RSS Feed Reader
I added my friend's blog feed here, so whenever i get connection i can get to read their latest blog update. Example here is Mr Brown Show, clicking on the Download mp3 will open the web brower and the audio player will stream the podcast along.
IM with Pidgin
Just like its desktop version, Pidgin for Maemo comes in two parts, the first window is your contact list, the second is your chat windows, all tabbed. U can do most of the things like change DP, change nick, nudge (but cannot receive nudge) plus all your fav plugin from the desktop version of Pidgin also can use!
Other funtions include media playback, PIM, setups and preferences...those standard stuff.
This is the Task Manager for the OS.
Installing software is easy, just goto the Maemo webby, can click "Install Now" and there u go..everything is automated. Else u got to follow instructions to download the files, repositories, packages...
It run on my 1GB RS-MMC, u can set up to 64MB for virtual memory also.
It can do google talk, VoIP thru the Google IM.
It got no camera, thus a perfect device into SAF camp. Since it has "Nokia" engraved on it, it can be easily disguised as just another no camera nokia phone.
