I was excited this afternoon when my wife phoned me at work to let me know that my Nokia N810 had arrived. Actually, Nokia's N810 had arrived. You see, Nokia has graciously agreed to provide me a loaner 810 for evaluation purposes. As I love my N800 ... I thought why not??!
Well, there was one minor problem with the N810 that Nokia sent to me ... the included power adapter is for the United Kingdom. Unfortunately all of my power converters assume that someone in the USA wants to plug American appliances into European or Asian outlets ... not the other way around.
Now on one hand, an external power charger which is independent of a PC is nice; however there are times a trickle USB charger might also be nice! This is one of those times. Thankfully, my Nokia N800 charger works with the 810. Thus, I'm still in business.
What was Nokia thinking when they sent me the English version? Regrettably, this is often a problem in we locals face in the frozen Northland. Minnesota is fly-over land ... perhaps somewhere near Siberia? Ever heard of Frostbite Falls?!
Anyhow, over the next few weeks I'll give you my impressions of the Nokia N810 and my own N800. (view all my Nokia posts)
