Unboxing the Nokia N800

If you have a Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, you probably already know from Thoughtfix that yesterday’s new firmware release (version 4.2007.26-8) adds, among other things, Skype support and Flash 9 to your device.

Me? I just got done unboxing my new N800. A quick check in the Control Panel shows my firmware as version 2.2006.51-6, too, so I’m really far behind. I’ll try to catch up in the coming weeks, but this is where I’m at so far.

Yeah, I really wasn’t joking about just unboxing the little handtop.

How nostalgic this must be for long-time owners. It was probably still snowing when some of you were doing this (the N800 was released in January 2007).

The packaging may not have been too impressive, but look at all the stuff inside it! Of particular note are the 128MB miniSD card with adapter, carrying pouch, extra stylus, and stereo headset with microphone.

The pouch isn’t really anything to look at, but it’s definitely better than nothing.

N800_unbox_stylus

These are probably the most stylish styli I’ve ever seen: triangular, silver accent, and various decorative cutouts.

N800_unbox_headset

Gee, I wonder which company’s headset this is.

I usually like to fully charge a new gadget before turning it on for the first time, but I couldn’t help myself. I’ve had this on my wishlist for months.

Getting online was really easy, but generally speaking, I don’t think the device is very user-friendly right out of the box. I didn’t expect it to be monkey-simple (no offense), of course, but I suspect the average consumer and/or tech newbie would be pretty dumbfounded.
