Nokia 770

I’ve been babbling like a stoolie for Pepper here for the past couple weeks, but after some prodding by Roger Sperberg I’ve started to take a serious look at the Nokia 770 linux-based internet tablet. To get me started is Mike Cane’s hands on report from some time spent with it at LinuxWorld Expo. Nokia is pushing to support the developer/hacker community, and there’s already some interesting work being done. And Mike Cane is keeping things up to date at Mike Cane’s ersatz 770 blog.

The 770 has a lot to like, including a nice 800×480 screen, WiFi, and a much lower price than the Pepper Pad. But I’m concerned about its dependance on handwriting recognition and that its small size may actually be counterproductive for my purposes.
