As I mentioned a few days ago, Nokia sent me a loaner N810 to evaluate. As I really like my N800, I was excited about using the higher end model. There are two big differences between the N800 and the N810. The latter model has a slide out keyboard, and embedded GPS. Yesterday evening Spot (my bassamation) and I decided to test out the embedded GPS during our late afternoon walk. Here is short screencast that reviews our walk and the Nokia's GPS featues:
- Spot Takes a Walk - The Nokia N810's GPS Capability
(may take a moment to load)
With respect to the basic capabilities, link to my earlier post where I have a screencast which reviews most of the Nokia basic features. Finally, I also created a "silent slideshow" which assumes one is lost, and shows how to find oneself:
- Where Am I? - The GPS "Find My Current Location" Feature
(50 seconds in duration ... one may pause the show)
A couple of comments... My N800 cost me $200. Amazon lists the N810 for $390. I've invested $45 for a full sized bluetooth keyboard and plan to add a bluetooth GPS receiver soon (also $45). Thus, my N800 investment is $100 less than the price of an N810. I personally like using a full size keyboard, but I have found the N810's slide out version also works nicely.
