the Nokia 770 internet tablet.
"Nokia's 770 is a bit of an anomaly when it comes to the company's device line-up. The 770 simply is not a phone (though it can connect to one). And while it offers a lot of PDA-like functionality, it isn't a PDA (though you could install the needed apps). Nor does it run a Series XX user interface on top of the Symbian OS, which Nokia owns a large portion of, instead relying on the new open-source Maemo platform, which itself uses Debian Linux for its operating system needs.
So if it isn't a phone, and it isn't a PDA, what exactly is it? It is what Nokia hopes to establish as a new category of home electronics device: the Internet Tablet.
