Nokia Adds Google Talk and SIP VoIP to Nokia 770 Internet Tablet
Nokia has introduced a software upgrade for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet, featuring support for rich Internet communications, including pre-installed Google Talk. Google Talk is Google's free instant messaging service that enables people to chat and make calls through the Internet.

Additional features of the new software edition include enhanced text typing with full-screen finger keyboard, improved memory performance and refreshed look. There is also an improved home view desktop allowing users to choose from a variety of small applets to enable fast access to Internet services.

In addition to Google Talk, which is based on open standards and is compatible with all instant messaging clients that support Jabber/XMPP, the Internet Tablet OS 2006 edition also offers Google as the default search provider.

The upgraded Internet Tablet software platform can also support SIP based VoIP solutions. Standalone software applications, like the popular Gizmo Project by SIPPhone Inc, is planned to be available for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet. The Gizmo Project has a rich feature set including the capability to make and receive calls from public telephony networks.

The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet is a Wi-Fi enabled device optimized for Internet communications in a slim pocket size format. The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet features a high-resolution (800x480) 4.13" widescreen display with zoom and on-screen, full-screen finger keyboard or handwriting recognition, 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 device.

The Internet Tablet OS 2006 edition which is based on Linux and Open Source technologies is planned to be available during the second quarter of 2006 in selected countries in Europe and the Americas. It will be downloadable free of charge for current users.
