Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

Nokia N800

[ #33792 ]

I got a toy: a Nokia N800. It's an internet tablet that runs Linux. To be honest, its killer app is probably Wikipedia. Or at least it was until last week, when they released Skype for it. It supports 2x 8GB SD cards which is handy for videos or when downloading maps for Maemo Mapper (which talks to my Bluetooth GPS matchbox). Mmm, toys.

  • It looks very cool but is it any real use in the real world?

    • Ever go anywhere without your laptop?
      • Don't have one...

        However is the Nokia good enough to replace a PDA and laptop?

        • Pepper Pad 3 [linuxdevices.com] -- though more expensive (USD640 from Newegg; USD688 from Amazon) than Nokia N800 -- seems more capable of general computing work. See also PepperWiki [chuma.org]. Keyboard divided around the screen is not very appealing to me.

          What I really want is something like Sharp SL C-3000 [dynamism.com] (USD800 from Dynamism) in case I lose the functionality of one (1) of my hands (permanently or temporarily). "OQO Model 02" and "raon Everun" are other choices of mine. There are more small computer thingies there on Dynam
