    Nokia is coming out with a 'internet tablet' - should be in stores in a couple of months with estimated price of 350 bucks - smartphones with smaller screens easily cost twice as much.


    It's not a phone but more like a web browser and a media player combined, and you can connect it to the web either via wifi or your (bt-enabled) cellphone. The "Moving Experience" animation at the webpage pretty much tells what it's made for.

    I'm prediciting even ol' Brucey might warm up for this, as no-one can call to it :D

    I'm very interested in devices like this. The new Palm device is appealing, too.

    To me, being able to sit in my recliner in the same room with my wife and do casual surfing and email is the goal. I've always felt this would take a device the size of a small book to be practical - we're finally almost there!
