CNET News Video: Nokia announces N810 Internet device

1:11 /

Look out, iPhone. Nokia's latest handheld Internet access device browses the Web, runs Flash and has GPS. It'll sell for $479 when it comes out in November. The downside: it has no cellular modem built in, so you have to use Wi-Fi or reach the Net via a Bluetooth link to your phone. Webware's Rafe Needleman takes a look.

>> Hi. This is Rafe Needleman from Web Wear, and we're taking a look at the new Nokia N 810 tablet computer. This is a Nokia product, it's not a phone. It's actually a Wi-Fi based Web access computer that you can work the Web on. It's touch screen. It will ship in November for $479, so Nokia says. Held like this, looks a little familiar, doesn't it? This machine runs LINUX, it comes with the browser, with Skype, with a couple other applications. Changes from the N 800 are that it has GPS built in, and it's a really nice device. It's really thin, it's bigger than an iPhone, and it doesn't have a cellular modum in it. You access the Web through Wi-Fi or via a Bluetooth link in our own cell modem. Nokia says that they know how to build cell phones and they might build one into a future device, or a module for this one later. But right now this is a Web access device. Now one of the things about this is because this is without a cellular carrier, Nokia doesn't have to deal with the carriers and what they want to put on it. So when they talk about building a clean Internet device, they can do whatever they want, and they've done it on this device. So, Nokia N 810, this is Rafe Needleman from webware.com.
