N800 + no WLAN = :(

| September 25, 2007 | Reply

There should be free WiFi everywhere!!

This was a post I wrote on the 19th, when all the internet access I had was cabled gmail/gtalk. No WLAN. No google. No nothing.

The N800: it’s a device that’s as good as the internet.

i.e. What ever is on the web, fairly certain that the N800 can deliver it to you pretty much how it appears on your computer. I’ve taken for granted that my home always has free WiFi, but now I’m staying where there’s no wifi available…my N800 is pretty much just a flamboyant touch sreen alarm clock.

Ah, but fear not I hear. the N800 can also connect to the internet via a compatible phone’s data services through bluetooth. For those on good data rates, that’s just the obvious solution. Me – stuck on O2 for the moment means that I’m experiencing a bit of day light robbery here. Damn you O2 and your (currently) sucky data plans

It’s the 25th now. I’ve moved my RSS feed reading to google reader again via lappy. The N800 was/is such a great device for constantly keeping you updated on the latest news from your subscriptions but mine hasn’t updated in days. I guess, until I get with T-Mobile’s Web’n’Walk, my N800 can still be my PMP. (Anyone in the UK know of any good Data Plans?)
