the new N810 seems to have a sliding keyboard and built-in GPS. The Wimax version of the 800 isn't expected till next year.

So, will this be the zaurus killer, or are we going to wait and see?

Where's the "I may buy one as a Zaurus supplement" option? And why is this a multiple choice poll?

Sorry, that poll was more difficult to fathom - for lack of an appropriate choice, than to directly answer here.

I am thinking I will jump for the N800 - rather tan wait for the N810. The 800 is already quite cheaper than launch time. Nut will there be no Zaurus like device with Wifi and bluetooth and the works ? Please.. answer my prayers.

Well till then the Nokia is the closest to the Zaurus as I see.

Details are still thin to make a guess and there could be a couple of more poll options. I think I'll be buying something by year's end (EEE PC or N810 or iPod Touch?), but I don't know what yet. Maybe a Chumby laugh.gif

My Zaurus works. til I find there is something I want to do that my Z and my phone don't do for me, I see no need to think about replacements.

Thanks. Sorry if I came off as harsh. I didn't mean to be.

no, no, not at all. As usual I thought of all the options that would apply to *me*, only after a good night's sleep and a few comments did I realise I'd not covered all the bases properly at all!

I voted getting one to in addition and to supplement my Z. If it pans out, I'll get one end of next year or early 2009 ... hehehe ... by then, there might be N900 already! ... but when I do, it will be more of a try out than replacement. So far the Z had proven rather resilent. smile.gif

Here are some clear pics of the new N810.
http://www.engadget.com/2007/10/17/nokias-...nce-drops-jaws/

Nothing extra except the retractable Keyboard.

I kind of liked the pull out Camera from before instead of the fixed camera in this new model.
And what's with putting the D-PAD on the keyboard though ?

Doesnt seem too too exciting to me ...

I was afraid the keyboard would look like this.

I've never used a device with a slide out keyboard, but I imagine it would be OK. I wonder if it would feel a bit top heavy when holding it.
It's also interesting that they put the dpad on the left. I wonder ifI could get used to that.

All-in-all I hope their product does well.

The D-pad has always been on the left side of their tablets (770/800), but on upper left hand side. I like having the D-pad in the upper left position. I don't like the new location, because that means you need the keyboard open to use it.

When i bought my N800 I thought I would miss having the keyboard I had on my Zaurus, but I actually didn't. The N800's interface is very finger-friendly, and used in combination with the D-pad was very useful. Having the D-pad in this new location just seems like a design mistake in my opinion.
