Phone maker Nokia has launched a Linux powered tablet-like device. The appliance is designed for browsing the internet and reading email. An on screen keyboard allows for text input.
It connects to the internet through a build in WiFi radio or uses to a mobile phone's data connection via Bluetooth. It however doesn't have a radio for cellular networks.
If it weren't running Linux, this would have been an utterly lame device. At least now it still some minor cool factor. It allows developers to create their own applications through the "Maemo" platform that Nokia created.
But I can't think of a single scenario where this device would come in and save the day, or at least where a PDA, smartphone or laptop wouldn't suffice.
So please tell me, dear readers, if you think the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet is worth $350 - and if so what it would allow you to do that you can't do today.
