Nokia 770: cellnetwork out; wifi and VoIP in

May 30, 2005 · 0 comments

Nokia introduced the 770 Web Tablet. Based on the Linux operating system, the device boasts a broad range of Internet related functionality, all navigated through a high resolution touch screen with Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 1.2. An extensive range of applications are included in the 770, such as a web browser with support for Macromedia Flash 6; an e-mail client; Internet radio; news reader; media player; image viewer; Adobe Acrobat viewer; file manager; search; calculator; world clock; notes; sketch; and games. To interact with the applications, an on-screen keyboard much similar to that found in the recently released Nokia 7710 is provided, with the 770 also offering zoom capabilities. The list of supported audio and video formats is extensive, with MP3, Real Audio, MPEG4, AAC, WAV, AMR and MP2 on the slate for the former; MPEG1, MPEG4, Real Video, H.263, AVI and 3GP. In addition, the 770 Internet Tablet also supports several image formats including JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF and PNG.

Did I mention the 770 has no cell-network functionality whatsoever? Wonder how long it will take before Nokia will appear on the Skype Partner page.

The 770 will be available in Q3 2005.
