Nokia 770 tablet with GoogleTalk offers users alternatives

By
A revamped interface with a full screen keyboard and of course the inclusion of GoogleTalk were highlights of the unveiling today of the new Nokia 770 Internet Tablet. However, the thing that appeals the most about this new device is its agnostic approach to new technology.

The Linux driven Nokia 770 is a machine that offers users alternatives. They can connect to the internet via Wi-Fi and make VoIP calls and do instant messaging using GoogleTalk. Alternatively, they can connect to the mobile network using bluetooth and a mobile phone. Users can choose to input data through a full screen keyboard or they can scrawl notes using the handwriting recognition system.

The Nokia has a good enough screen to browse the web and do real work on. Although it might be a little large to fit in some pockets, despite Nokia's claims, it is bound to be a popular item at the growing number of Wi-Fi hotspots, as an alternative to bulkier notebook PCs. With its mobile connectivity, the Nokia 770 could also have some very useful applications for workers in the field, such as sales reps.

We can expect to see Nokia's latest brainchild on the market within a month or so.
