A N800 is a very small device that uses WiFi to access the web, including good support for Google GMail and instant messaging, and has a built in video camera.
Although it is a very nice device, I have two issues with it:
- I thought that it came with video conferencing software (from what I just read, I need to wait a few months for additional software to be available).
- The screen is very small – the resolution is a tasty 800×480, but the physical size is small. I find myself holding it about 14 inches from my eyes – probably too close to avoid eyestrain with long uninterrupted use.
I bought it for portability for reading both online technical material and fun stuff like Slashdot and reddit – without having to hold a laptop. After using it for about 1 hour I became very used to it. Also, did I mention that it runs Linux
