My Nokia 770 finally arrived. lts the first time l experience Linux as a consumer product, even though l’ve been using Linux as my primary OS since 1992. The sensation is quite strange.
My first impression is: WoW!!
The display is incredible. Though rather small, only about 4″ it is 800 pixels wide and very clear. Text can be small but there is no flicker.
Text input is by an online keyboard or by handwriting. As a matter of fact l’m writing this on the 770 using the handwriting recognition. lt is a weird way of typing, but you can get used to it. Be careful to write clear and distinct characters.
The first time l turned it on it searched for my mobile phone which it located without problems. Next it found my wifi-network, again all by itself. lt could hardly be easier.
lt was on the network in a few seconds.
