N810 Great...Small Issues
I bought this device in order to stop booting up my laptop every time I needed to check a website. I wanted an instant on always connected device which could render the web as near to my normal system as possible. Everyone else will expound on how great it is, I agree with them, but want to note some small caveats.<br> <br> 1. The device is amazing and well worth the money.<br> 2. IMAP with gMail is not currently working. You'll get headers, but not mail<br> data. POP3 supposedly works fine.<br> 3. N810 has one miniSDHC slot not two SDHC slots like the N800. I am planning<br> to buy an 8 GB microSDHC card and put it in a miniSD adapter (Can't find 8<br> GB microSDHC at all)<br> 4. Webcam camera exists, but no software really takes advantage. I hear Gizmo<br> VoIP client can though.<br> 5. Map program is rudimentary at best. Wish Google Maps would work, but no<br> such luck.<br> 6. Speaking of Google Maps there is no Java Virtual Machine (JVM) built in, so<br> no Google Maps or gMail App.<br> 7. N810 is very new, so forums and blogs are the current best way to learn of<br> new features, there is no one place that holds all the great tips, software,<br> documentation or support.<br> 8. Mini USB interface on the N810 is non standard. Not sure how that will<br> affect anyone, but it is annoying in the esoteric sense.<br> 9. No MS Office document support by default be prepared to convert the files.<br> <br> With all of the above the device is still totally worth it. I got Gizmo SIP to work, Skype running, Google Talk, rDesktop (RDP), eBook Reader all up with little to no hassle.
