One of the "hot deals" listed on the front page of DealsPlus today is the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, which Buy.com is now selling for only $242.99 with free shipping. This is an incredible savings of over $150 off the original MSRP! Amazon and a few other retailers have also reduced their prices for the Linux-based handtop, though none quite as drastically as Buy.
These lower prices come only a few months after the first images of what could be the N800’s successor were submitted by an anonymous (though friendly) tipster and mere days after newly discovered FCC filings began to kick up some dust, so I suspect the rumors and speculation about more concrete specs, pricing, and availability will begin to pick up speed again.
In any case, the N800 is an incredibly versatile piece of equipment with one of the most capable mobile browsers around. And this new low price (which isn’t expected to last long) can’t be beat.[Product page]
