Darla Tests the Nokia 770
I am still looking for a Nokia 770 to test here on Geekzone. I had the chance to briefly play with the nokia 770 during the CES 2006 in Las Vegas, but Darla Mack seems to have a beter luck.

She tells us "While marketed as a WiFi device the 770 can connect to GPRS through a compatible bluetooth phone and a good internet plan from your service provider...".

And then continue "even though its not a phone, which was repeated to me everytime I asked about a built in calendar, how hard would it be to sync to the same phone connected via bt to update a calendar? Yes folks, the 770 has no calendar syncing function. So, if one were using this in replacement for their laptop wouldn't a personal assistant management system of some sort be appropriate?"

That's strange. I would expect the device to have a sophisticated calendar application. I didn't look for one while playing using the device at the CES 2006 simply because I assumed it was there.

After reading Darla's blog post it looks like this is a very good browsing device - but not a PDA replacement by all means...

I wonder when Nokia New Zealand will have this here for our tests?
