As expected, Nokia announced the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet – WiMAX Edition today at CTIA 2008. For the first time, the power and convenience of the Internet Tablet platform is combined with next generation wide-area wireless broadband capability, allowing users to easily and quickly access all of their favorite Internet services beyond local area hot spots.
The WiMAX Edition will feature the same 4.13-inch WVGA touchscreen display, 2GB of internal memory, integrated GPS, integrated VGA web camera, and slide-out QWERTY keyboard as the original N810.
Nokia also announced that with the WiMAX Edition comes the latest edition of the Linux-based OS2008 which introduces useful new features to the platform, including an enhanced e-mail client, support for Chinese character rendering in the browser and RSS feeds and Seamless Software Update functionality to eliminate manual software updates. Current owners of Nokia N810 and N800 Internet Tablets will also be able to upgrade to the latest OS version.
The Nokia N810 WiMAX Edition will be offered in the United States starting this summer in areas where WiMAX connectivity is available. Pricing was not disclosed.
