Thursday 26 May 2005 @ 12:25 am

On May 25, 2005, Nokia launched a new type of mobile device, which it is calling an Internet Tablet, which it said will focus on Internet browsing and e-mail.

Nokia 770

The device, called the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet, is based on Linux and has built-in support for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It sports an 800 x 480 display and an on-screen keyboard.

“Linux is a logical choice for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet as Linux and the Open Source development platform provide us with fast and efficient solutions to build products for this new Nokia product category,” Janne Jormalainen, Nokia’s vice president of convergence products, said in a statement.

Software included with the first version include Internet radio, an RSS news reader (this raised my eye browses), image and media players as well as Web browsing and e-mail software. The company said the tablet will start shipping in the third quarter of 2005 in the Americas and Europe. However, no pricing information at this moment.
