Linux alternative to iPod touch
Now that the iPod touch is here, let's do a side by side comparison with it and see how the N800 fares, after the jump.
Below is a comparison table of the specs for the N800 and the iPod touch.
The N800 has VOIP capabilities and is Skype ready. This means you can use the device to make internet calls and even have video chats. The iPod touch does not have VOIP.
By most accounts, the N800 has choppy video playback, while the iPod touch plays back video smoothly. On the other hand, the N800's Bluetooth, FM receiver, camera, and WiMax might help make up the slack for the choppy video. And the N800 has the optional GPS kit which would allow your tablet to also act as a GPS receiver. Then there's all the third party applications you can go nuts with such as:
- Pidgin - full-featured internet messaging client, with AIM, MSN, Yahoo and Jabber support
- Canola - media player with network streaming
- FBReader - e-book reader
- Claws Mail - full-featured email client
- Obscura Photo Manager
