“The Nokia 770 measures 5.5in. x 3.1in x 0.7in and weighs in at a hair over 8 ounces. It also has a 4.13in. LCD display, and what a display it is: 16-bit color at 800×480. It runs something called “Internet Tablet 2005 Software Edition” which is actually a tweaked version of Debian. It comes with a fair amount of bundled applications including a web browser (Opera), e-mail client, audio and video players, image viewer, RSS reader, Internet radio player, and more.
Hardware-wise, the specs seemed a bit light for what it promised. It has 128MB of flash RAM, of which half is available to the user. An additional 64MB of RAM is available via a reduced-size MultiMediaCard. The CPU is the ARM-based TI 1710 OMAP, running at 250MHz. Is that enough for the functionality the 770 aims to provide? More on that later.”

Ars Technica reviews the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet, a strange mix of mobile beasties. It’s a mix of a laptop and a PDA, with wireless internet and reasonable media player. At about 8 ounces, and more or less pocket sized (5.5in. x 3.1in x 0.7in), you can’t get any more mobile, though you trade that mobility for power.
