Nokia N800 gets Skype – Internet tablet lovers sigh with relief


The Nokia N800 Internet Tablet now supports Skype. Plus Flash 9.0 (YouTube now works), and 8 GB memory cards (16 GB in total). The new firmware also improves WiFi battery life and touchscreen sensitivity. This is really moving the product along a very nice path, and the multimedia support is now great, with excellent video functionality as well as Internet and FM radio included as standard. Unfortunately I can’t find out how to access more Internet radio stations than the default set. Ah well. It’s also a shame that it doesn’t have built-in HSDPA so you could switch from WiFi to 3G at the drop of a whistle, then it really would be an iPhone killer. [Via Om Malik]


  • You can add new radio stations simply by browsing to the one you want to save, for example Groove Salad. Select the appropriate stream eg groovesalad.pls and then copy it to the Media Player and save.

    I am doing this from memory so may have forgotten the odd step but it is as simple as that.

    Now if it would only handle…

  • Ah great, thanks Marx. :-)

  • can you use the Nokia N800 as an mp3 player with all the storage space avalible? im looking at hoocking one up to my car.

  • Gazz – yep. And as a GPS unit (with Navicore). :-)
