Hands on with the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet (next in the Nokia 770 series)
“Disconnect” on IRC (#maemo on freenode) bought a Nokia N800 this morning. Here are excerpts from his findings so far:
[12:24] Did anyone pick up an n800 yet?
[12:25] Disconnect is playing with it
[12:25] jtokash: i did, we’re trying to get an xterm running
[12:25] does it actually have dual mem slots?
[12:27] one in battery comp (mmc/sd) and one outside behind stand (same)
[12:27] 192M usable int storage
[12:31] omfg youtube works
[12:31] * Disconnect was not expecting that
[12:36] and youtube is way low framerate
[12:36] audio has some glitches
[12:42] Disconnect: try to open /dev/dsptask in a browser, does it show any files there?
[12:42] Disconnect: so we can do RAID1 over sd
[12:44] “some random v6 processor rev 2 (v61)”
[12:45] no clock info in cpuinfo
[12:45] What’s the bogos on the 770?
[12:45] armv6 usually means vfp included
[12:46] and no more alignment problems
[12:46] and SIMD for ssvb
[12:46] yah vfp
[12:46] 125.76bogo on my 770 atm.
[12:46] So, potentially twice as fast.
[12:47] Disconnect: so, how did you get one?
[12:47] Disconnect: how much did it cost, btw?
[12:47] I guess you might be the first customer
[12:47] same as reported
[12:48] gonna try to get kb working
[12:50] bt kb works out of the box
[12:50] 128M ram still
[12:50] Disconnect: there’s a “Bluetooth” applet in Control Panel, I believe?
[12:51] and a “hardware keyboard” one
[12:51] * Disconnect is gonna try R&D mode
[12:51] Disconnect: 770 has 64mb
[12:52] does the included headset have a microphone on it?
[12:52] ok so 128 now
[12:52] and yah i think so. checking.
[12:52] looks like it
[12:52] and a clicker
[12:53] anyone want to try gchat audio/video?
