used each NIT as an e-reader but I learned what it's great at is, well, doing the internet thing. As its name suggests.

I thought GPS was a natural win. The big screen made maps easier to read than on most dedicated devices. Still, I used my tablet for email more often than GPS.

The voip calls with visuals blew me away. Except no one with a tethered connection bought into cam-calling.

The 770, the N800, the N810 — these were all complete computers! They meant I didn't have to lug around a laptop just in case I had real work to do. But I did most of my real work on a real computer and my wife never got the hang of using a NIT. My son's friends found the iPod Touch easier for surfing and he never cottoned to it.

With its touch screen, I didn't need a keyboard, but I liked the N810 keyboard. The keyboard made apps easier to port anyway.

And Flash! Once it became clear that “internet” meant surfing without sideways scrolling, email, and videos on YouTube, the internet tablet excelled at giving me the internet.

Well, excelled in lots of circumstances. Without a cell-plan data connection the walkaround web had no impact on NIT users. The Apple iPhone has a minuscule segment of the smartphone market but generates 50 percent of mobile web use. Apple's genius wasn't in the interface but in browbeating AT&T into affordable web access.

Does the Nokia Internet Tablet have a real future? We have a $200 netbook and it's easier for conference notetaking than an N810. I have an Amazon Kindle 2 and I can get books for it that aren't available for FBReader on my NITs. Half the cars have GPS built-in now anyway. So what's the sweet spot for the Internet Tablet?

Doh!. The internet, same as it's always been.

Except these days, “the internet” means Twitter, too. With multi-tasking so I can tweet full-screen and use multiple screens to follow several hundred people (in more than one group). With keyboard and touch-screen and audio and photos too. And from anywhere I might be, um-m, walking around.

I can tweet from a phone now, thank you very much, but making sure it fits is no piece of cake. Tweeting means editing down to 140 characters without having to struggle. And reading (following), tweeting and surfing simultaneously? Hey, where's my computer again? At least Maemo was built for us to do more than one thing at a time.

I expect there will be lots of cellphones released this year that have keyboards and screens of a satisfactory size and cameras. Just having good specs won't draw much attention. But if the next NIT can ace the Twitter test and fly the Flash flag, it'll be very much in demand.


'RogerSThese days more of what I have to say about the Nokia Internet Tablet gets said via Twitter than at Internet Tablet Talk (and

A blog post usually takes me a couple hours to create, from working out what I have to say to cleaning up the version transmigrated to the forums. A bit less when I don't make a graphic too. Being shorter — under 25 words — tweets take me only 5 to 15 minutes to compose.

No room for folderol (even though that's my specialty as a blogger). No visuals expected. One link per item not only suffices but pressures you

to say less; two links I've never done.

And with my hummingbird attention span, I finish a tweet and soon I'm on to the next think. But I have a couple dozen more-or-less-completed blogs that were never posted for want of the final . . . polish I'm inclined to say, but really it's more a final galvanizing-to-life. A lot of work for no result.

There's another reason, which relates to something Krisse posted recently. The world at large is unaware of the NIT's sterling features, and just explaining what they are serves a real use. But the proportion of NIT owners who are developers is so great that the message is distorted in our forums. It's like Oxford or Stony Brook — all university, no kindergarten.

So this thought leads me to two others. Is there any practical way for to stream Internet Tablet-related tweets along with its other NIT/mameo coverage? (And any desire for people to see it here?) I leave

this to the community at large to discuss because I won't be writing a blog post about it.

I will, however, be writing about whether Twitter might not be the real internet app that the Internet Tablet was made for. The next one, anyway, the one that fits in your pocket, has a keyboard and 800-pixel-wide screen, and connects to the internet wherever you happen to walking around. Instead of today's thought (“How might benefit from Twitter”), maybe the essential issue is how might the Internet Tablet benefit Twitter users.
