Later this week I’ll be heading to the Cannes advertising festival in France, and the last thing I want to bring with me is a laptop. So this past weekend while I was in New York, I dropped-by the Nokia flagship store at 5th & 57th and walked out with a skimpy little number that I can frollick around with on the beach.
Behold the Nokia n800 At first glance, I figured “this’ll do until the iPhone comes out” but after having played around with it, I’m not so interested in the iPhone anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I love Apple, but the only reason why the iPhone may dominate the market is because of its sexy marketing … the n800 is a linux-powered workhorse with upwards of 250 applications already developed for it (at the time of this post), including Gizmo Project & a WordPress client to name a couple.
The iPhone may be slick and shiny, but Nokia’s got some serious development on their side. I look forward to reporting from sunny Cannes from my new wireless device.
