Is Nokia reading this weblog?

Engadget (who else?) has unearthed some hazy pictures of a possible Nokia N800 successor with a sliding keyboard.  As I wrote back in February:

Nokia may have built a better device if they had incorporated a slide down keyboard. Given the ?bump? on the backside that accommodates the camera and stylus, adding incremental depth to the unit by adding a slide down keyboard would have made it much more useful.Nokia may have built a better device if they had incorporated a slide down keyboard.

I know that I’m not the only one who has seen this deficiency in the N800, so it’s encouraging to see that Nokia may be listening (and reading) to user feedback on this device.  The only troubling point on the leaked pictures is that it looks pretty ugly.

  1. Nitin, What about office software? Which one does it use… openoffice or quickoffice. Do we need to purchase that separately or it is available FOC?

    Thanks.

  2. Deep,

    The N800 ships with a very basic writing application, and nothing else. There are several open source applications that have been ported over to the N800. You can find that list at http://www.maemo.org.
