    It just came out and Nokia is already out of stock even though they basically have not advertised it to the general public at all. I ordered two units earlier this week, looks like they won't ship before December.:wtc:

    If you know ANYTHING about open source/Linux, you understand why this is a big deal. It'll change the world.

    No, it won't change the world. All it'll do is make tech geeks happy. The average american won't ever care about this stuff.

    You are right, the average American won't care about this stuff. The average American did not buy a cell phone when they first came out. Know what I mean? The average American follows, never leads.

    The Nokia tablet is cool and all, but at close to $400, I can get a PDAphone, a cheap laptop, a desktop, etc. Doesn't seem like it'll ever really catch on :dunno:

    Higher res screen and bigger too.....

    Besides that its not much different, it probably lacks features.

    I'm sold on it if I can figure out a way to do remote access, just saw someone mention it on another board and it is perfect for my needs at home.

    mobileburn.com just got one and did a review of it. looks pretty sweet. I just broke down and bought a N90 tho so it doesnt look like i'll be getting one.

    I might get one. I like the fact that you can screen videos and music from the web and I can use the 770 anywhere with my Nokia 6682 unlimited data plan.
