The N800 Saga

with one comment


As expected, the N800 at Play.com is, and I quote, “Temporarily out of stock. This item will be dispatched as soon as it arrives“. There were rumors that the great price that play was offering wasn’t going to be honored and I suppose that in this case the rumors were true.

So what now? The Asus Eee PC looks like a promising acquisition but it’s becoming harder and harder to find, even at it’s retail price! Anyway, I’m off to hunt for a Linux gadget.

N800 Ordered

without comments

The recent price drop on the Nokia N800 here in the UK really got me thinking how much I miss my 770 since I sold it around a month ago. I had become increasingly frustrated with it crapping out in the browser to the point that if I hadn’t sold it I would of probably thrown it against a wall. Anyway, the N800 always tempted me but it was, in my opinion too expensive. Now that its at £149.99 from Play.com (on pre-order) it was just too tempting.

I guess my little rest from Linux isn’t going to be for that long after all!

EDIT: Looks like its back up to £279.99! I hope they honor their pre-orders at the lower price.

A break from Linux

without comments

I’m taking a break from all things Linux. Not because I don’t think that Linux is the way forward, but because I have zero time at the moment to play with things that aren’t absolutely essential and unfortunately that means Linux and Internet tablets for me. I’m sure I’ll be back soon enough though!
