I Had To Ask Myself...
Is it possible for the new Internet Tablet, that has caused quite a stir, make me want to upgrade? After hearing about some more details being revealed, There's probably more reason to be excited about this device than I first thought.
Do I think it's bigger than the 770? No.
I think the device is actually smaller than the 770. We'll see.
Do I think that nub sticking out in the top left corner is a web camera? Yes.
I think it's a web cam, but I also think there's more to it than just being "extendable". We'll see.
Do I think the three face buttons just ordinary face buttons? No.
Something's different about them, but I can't quite put my finger on it. [I know, bad joke]
Do I think the the chrome outline is part of the front of the device? No.
I think it's part of the transparent cover for the device. We'll see.
Do I think the device will officially be named the 870? No.
I think it's more likely the device will be named the 780, but I wouldn't bet on that either. Guess we'll see.
Do I think the speaker placement is a bad idea? No.
I think the speakers are in the right location and the mic is probably right where it needs to be. We'll see.
Do I think having a MiniSD card slot instead of RS-MMC was a dumb idea? No.
This will cause some to cringe I'm sure, but I think the decision will make it easier for Nokia to build smaller/slimmer tablets going forward. Besides, If they bundle a 128MB card with the device, does it really matter that much?
I may be nuts by thinking this way, but we'll see...
