Nokia N810 Features

One of the many popular brands of cellular phones for sale today in the Philippines is the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. Different online free ads philippines sites have been visited by avid fans of the brand, expecting that a used or second hand Nokia N810 Internet Tablet would be put up for sale because this particular model doesnt come cheap. So what is the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet? What makes it in-demand not only in the Philippines, but also across the globe?

The Nokia N810 Internet Tablet is an Internet appliance manufactured by Nokia. Announced on 17 October, 2007 at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet received much anticipation from the public. Despite Nokias strong association with cellular products, the N810 is not a phone, but instead allows the user to browse the Internet and communicate using Wi-Fi networks or with a mobile phone via Bluetooth. It builds on the hardware and software of the Nokia N800 with some features added and some removed.

Like all Nokia Internet Tablets, Nokia N810 runs on Maemo, an OS similar to many handheld operating systems that provides a central point from which all applications and settings are accessed,or commonly known as the "Home" screen. The Home screen is divided into areas for launching applications, a menu bar, and a large customisable area that can display information such as an RSS reader, Internet radio player, and Google search.

Difference Between N810 and N800
The Nokia N810 has much in common with the N800 and Internet Tablet OS 2008 will operate on both, but there are some significant differences between the two. Here are the new features in the Nokia N810:

* Sliding, backlit keyboard
* Front-facing webcam (replacing pop-out rotating device)
* Ambient Light Sensor
* Integrated GPS
* 256 MB & 2GB integrated internal storage
* MiniSDHC card slot (replacing two full-size SDHC slots, one internal, one external)
* Sunlight readable transreflective display
* Micro-USB (replacing a Mini-USB type B)
* No longer has an FM tuner

Nokia N810 WiMAX Edition

Another feature that made the Nokia N810 as one of the most popular cellular phones for sale on the Philippines is its Nokia N810 WiMAX Edition. On 1 April 2008, Nokia announced a WiMAX equipped version of the N810 called the "N810 WiMAX Edition". This device was to be identical in specifications to the original N810 but includes a WiMAX radio for use initially on Sprints Xohm network, and featured a color change from Light Gray to Black, as well as a larger case-back bulge to accommodate the module.

Though the model became a hit, Nokia decided to end the production of their Wimax Edition of the Nokia N810 in January 2009. This is because WiMaxs current coverage area is far too small to sustain a niche device.
