I have recently become a little disheartened by all the talk that the Nokia Internet Tablets are not a good for general Internet surfing using the provided Opera 8 Browser. So last Night whilst lying in bed I quickly fired up my Nokia 770, connected to my Wi-Fi network and the Internet and visited a few sites.
Below are some captured Nokia 770 screen grabs to illustrate the ability to open various sites and work within site almost completely normally and as you would expect to on a typical PC.
1a) Google Maps: Location 28027 Madrid, normal view. (Full 800x480 view on Nokia 770)
1b) Google Maps: Location 28027 Madrid, Satellite view. (Full 800x480 view on Nokia 770)
2a) Blogger2: Dashboard.
2b) Blogger2: New post where using Opera 8, I am unable to enter the Title & Link fields.
2c) We are able to clearly see and edit the HTML of the post, although the edit html, compose and preview options do not display correctly? (Like Title and Link options above)
2d) Adding multiple images from Nokia's Internal or external memory works great.
2e) Images uploaded to the draft Blog post.
2f) Saving the draft blog post with the uploaded images.
3) Gmail. (Full 800x480 view on Nokia 770)
4) BBC World. (Full 800x480 view on Nokia 770)
5a) Editing text using the virtual keyboard designed for the stylus. (Earlier screen capture from a few days ago when using old blogger)
5a) Editing text using the Finger & Thumb keyboard.
I am well aware and I do agree that there are real issues using the Opera 8 browser on the Nokia 770 and Nokia N800. With regard to sites with heavy Flash usage, there are definitely problems with the Nokia 770 which uses Flash 6; but even the new Nokia N800 with Flash 7 and more onboard memory, the problems have not been fully resolved.
However to say that the Nokia Internet tablets are not a good Internet Surfing device when on the move is just plain wrong !
