I've never been a big fan of the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet, partly because I just didn't see the point and partly because it seemed like a half-baked product. However, Nokia has released a revamped version of the InterneTablet t at CES 2007, the Nokia N800, and I'm digging it.

Sporting a sleeker and more attractive design, the N800 includes some nice enhancements, such as a built-in Web cam (very cool), a faster processor, a full-screen QWERTY keyboard, and two memory slots. In addition, the device retains many of the features that you've come to love on the 770, including integrated Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi, a beautiful, high-resolution screen, an RSS feed reader, and multimedia capabilities. Instant messaging and VoIP calls are also supported, and Nokia is working with Skype to develop a new mobile Skype experience, specifically for the N800.

So with the addition of these upgrades and having seen firsthand the better integration of features, I'm ready to give the Nokia Internet Tablet another chance. A spanking new N800 should be waiting for me when I return to San Francisco later this week, so stay tuned for a full review, or if you just can't wait to get your hands on one, the Nokia N800 is available now for $399.99.
