I'm coming from the Zaurus side of things, having used a C3000 for a couple of years. Unfortunately, it was recently stolen, and instead of getting another one, I'm thinking of replacing it with an N800.

I tried to search, but didn't really come up with much in the forums, so here are a couple of questions:

1) Is there real word processing, Word (or at least ODT) compatible software available for the N800? I see that there is a reader, but I'd ideally like to be able to do substantial word processing with a bluetooth keyboard.

2) Is it possible to map the keyboard for international english usage?

If I could do both those things, I could leave my laptop behind and work for the most part on the N800.

Any info is greatly appreciated.

Last week my C3000 was stolen, after a solid 2 (almost 3) years of use. :-(

At this point, I still have my 5600, which I'll keep, but I don't think I'm going to get another Zaurus clamshell. I've been eyeing the new Nokia N800. Substantially cheaper, but less applications available.

Anyway, I never realized how much I used the C3000 until I no longer had it.

Anybody know if this particular model will work with the Zaurus?

I recently got a Blackberry Pearl (love it) and one option to purchase is a BT-359 from GlobalSat, so I know it'll will work with the Pearl.

Ideally I like to buy one GPS puck that will work with both my Zaurus C3000 and the Pearl.

Anybody else have this combination and use GPS?

I really like the form factor of it, with a foldable fullsize keyboard.

I don't see any pricing info, but it sure does look nice.

I'm pretty sure Linux could be made to run on it.

It's expensive, but I like the form factor.
