Nokia's Linux-powered N800 Internet Tablet sneaks out early

Officially, Nokia Inc. is still mum about its new Linux-based N800 Internet Tablet, the successor to its N770 Internet Tablet, but it's already on sale in some U.S. stores.

As reported by LinuxDevices.com, the N800 is now for sale at some CompUSA stores for $399.99. This new model, from sources close to Nokia and the Carrypad website, appears to be a substantial upgrade to the Nokia 770.

Some of these are changes that Linux tablet fans have been requesting for some time. These include increasing the RAM from the older model to 128 MB and its flash memory to 256MB. The processor has also been given a kick in the pants with an increase in speed from 220MHz to 320MHz.
