Nokia 770

  • 20th Nov, 2005 at 6:49 PM

I'm writing this entry on Jeff's little handheld computer. Literally! The handwriting recognition is a little difficult to use quickly but it is rather tolerable once you get used to its quirks.

Update at 1:44: The Nokia 770 is actually a nice little toy. Its LCD screen is unbelievably crisp and the computer is relatively responsive. Although there are some annoying usability problems with the interface, these are nothing particularly bad. And they are relatively minor.

I think I would be interested if they were thinner and had more permanent flash storage. It's the size of a generous notebook but with very respectable amounts of computing power. Plus, it runs Debian, so porting any missing software that I want to use would not be too difficult.

Hey, that does look interesting. Quite progressive of Nokia to recognize that to many people a device like this (with VoIP, which it says will be in the next OS release) can act as a more functional replacement for a cell phone.

Although there are some annoying usability problems with the interface, these are nothing particularly bad. And they are relatively minor.

I'm guessing they're not so minor if you're left-handed.
