Did some smug Norwegian point out to you, that milo.com chocked on non-ASCII chars?

We used to have to boot up on six clock cycles in the morning, clean the cache, flash a handful of hot GIFs, work twenty hours a day at the data centre, for two bit a month, shut down, and the janitor would short out our power supply with a bottle of Windex, if we were lucky!
Paris, 'cause she doesn't run at full wattage either. Bless the environmentally conscious, recycling friendly, multi-talented heiress.
"... its important Internet Tablet range, its answer to Intel's Ultra-Mobile PC"
Hmm. I've got one.
I think it's a great little box, no doubt about that. But I honestly don't see Nokia treating it as if it was an important product to them. Particularly after the shoddy way they handled the roll-out of OS2008, with horribly overloaded and misconfigured servers.
But it would be nice if they were to ditch Gnome/GTK in favour Qt on the Tablets. I never could stand writing code for GTK, and Gnome is the stuff of nightmares.
I think it's a mistake to hide away the five-way navigation key in the slide-out keyboard.
But otherwise it looks sweet, and if I didn't have an N800 already, I'd be very tempted.
The real keyboard is a nice feature. Touch screen keyboards all suck, IMHO, though they do have the advantage of adapting easily to non-English layouts.
They're rather different devices.
The iPod is a good media player, but 320x480 just ain't gonna cut it for websurfing, IMHO.
The N800 is a geek-toy for developers, with a good (800x480) screen for some quick surfing, but it's too bulky to really be a good replacement for the iPod as a portable media player.
I love (not carnally, mind) my N800, and use the Navicore GPS kit quite a bit, but it's not something I'd recommend to non-propellerheads.
The iPod Touch, however, would be of little use to me.
Though I must admit, I pretty much bought my Nokia N800 as a toy, :-) I've been pleasantly surprised at how well it does the things I need: web browsing; podcasts; simple mail; some puzzle games to pass the time at the airport; GPS navigation (with Bluetooth GPS); uploading files to my web server on the go...
I've considered getting a Bluetooth keyboard for it, but even a foldable one would make it all too bulky to chuck in my pocket, IMHO.
Considering the size of this Foleo thing, I can't quite see when it would make sense for me.
I wish Palm the best of luck with it. It's just not for me.
