The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet Starts Shipping
Nokia has started deliveries of the first device in its new Internet Tablet product category, the Nokia 770. The pocket sized device is Nokia's first Linux-based terminal product and is dedicated to convenient Internet browsing and email communications over Wi-Fi.

The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet features a high-resolution 4.13" (800x480 pixels) widescreen display with zoom and on-screen keyboard, ideal for viewing online content over Wi-Fi.

Aside from Wi-Fi, the device can also connect to the Internet utilizing Bluetooth wireless technology via a compatible mobile phone. It also comes with a web browser, flash player, email client, Internet radio, news reader, file manager and media players to enable your favourite Internet services to move with you.

"We are very excited to start shipments of our first Nokia Internet Tablet device," said Janne Jormalainen, Vice President of Convergence Products, Multimedia, Nokia. "Since announced back in May we have seen huge interest in this device, particularly from the Open Source community."

The device runs on Linux based Nokia Internet Tablet 2005 software edition which is based on popular desktop Linux and Open Source technologies. The maemo web site provides Open Source developers and innovation houses with the tools and opportunities to collaborate with Nokia on future devices and OS releases in the Internet Tablet category. The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet was recently named Best Embedded Linux/Mobile Product or Initiative at the 2005 UK Linux & Open Source Awards.

"This is the first step to creating an Open Source product for broadband and Internet services. We will be launching regular software updates. During the first half of year 2006 we will launch the next operating system upgrade to support more presence based functionalities such as VoIP and Instant Messaging", continues Janne Jormalainen.

The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet is available at an estimated sales price of EUR 350 euros.
