The Nokia N810 Internet Tablet is an Internet appliance from Nokia, announced on 17 October, 2007 at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco. Despite Nokia's strong association with cellular products, the N810 is not a phone, but instead allows the user to browse the Internet and communicate using Wi-Fi networks or with a mobile phone via Bluetooth. It builds on the hardware and software of the Nokia N800 with some features added and some removed.

The Nokia N810 features the Maemo Linux distribution,[2] based on Maemo 4.0, which features MicroB (a Mozilla-based mobile browser), a GPS navigation application, new media player, and a refreshed interface.

Major changes from the N800

The Nokia N810 has much in common with the N800 and Internet Tablet OS 2008 will operate on both, but there are some significant differences between the two. Here are the new features in the Nokia N810:

  • Sliding, backlit keyboard
  • Front-facing webcam (replacing pop-out rotating device)
  • Ambient Light Sensor
  • Integrated GPS [1]
  • 2GB integrated internal storage
  • MiniSDHC card slot (replacing two full-size SDHC slots, one internal, one external)
  • Sunlight readable transflective display
  • USB Micro-AB receptacle (replacing a USB Micro-B receptacle)
  • No longer has an FM tuner

Nokia N810 WiMAX Edition

On 1 April 2008, Nokia announced a WiMAX equipped version of the N810 called the "N810 WiMAX Edition". This device was to be identical in specifications to the original N810 but included a WiMAX radio for use initially on Sprint's Xohm network, and featured a color change from Light Gray to Black, as well as a larger case-back bulge to accommodate the module.[3]

The production of the Wimax Edition of the Nokia N810 was canceled in January 2009. [4]

Maemo

The N810, like all Nokia Internet Tablets, runs Maemo, which is similar to many handheld operating systems, and provides a "Home" screen — the central point from which all applications and settings are accessed. The Home screen is divided into areas for launching applications, a menu bar, and a large customisable area that can display information such as an RSS reader, Internet radio player, and Google search box for example. Maemo is a modified version of Debian GNU/Linux.

The N810 is bundled with several applications including the Mozilla-based MicroB browser, Adobe Flash, Gizmo, and Skype.[5]

Mobile Firefox "Fennec" is now available for N810, and promises to make user "forget about the clunky, stripped-down mobile Web you're used to".[6] Installation adds the Mozilla repository to the Application Manager, allowing automatic notification of updates.[7]
