The Nokia 870

Anyone remember the Nokia 770 ? Well, it became the linux-hacker's favorite toy last year and was a hit among the Debian and GNOME projects, mainly because it used a custom Debian distribution and a bunch of GNOME apps. Well, Nokia hasn't given up on the internet-tablet and we seem to have the succesor to the 770, the Nokia 870. New features seem to be a web-cam and better VoIP support. It should surely have GPS built into it. If this thing has some sort of mobilephone functionality, I'll buy it the first day it releases.

It's not a phone, and doesn't have phone functionality. This is intentional, the point being that you use your cheap-ass mobile phone over a Bluetooth connection if you want IP connectivity over GSM/HSDPA/EDGE/CDMA/WHATEVER.

If you don't get this concept or the concept dissapoints you, the "870" (or whatever it will be called) is simply not for you.
