Use of the stylus is fascinating. You can use it two ways. One is through the QWERTY keyboard interface that pops up on the screen. You tap over the letters with your stylus. Which is how I type on my laptop except with about four fingers. Yes, I have all ten fingers. I’m just too lazy to use them. Now, the other stylus method uses handwriting recognition software. Writing on the screen will be compared with a library of characters. After, say, writing an “r”, the software searches for the closest match and it displays an “r” on the screen. There’s a database of several different writing styles and you can also “train” the system to learn your own personal style. I think my brother’s style would be called “chicken scratching”. I have several styles depending on whether I want to be readable or not.
In addition to connection via Bluetooth (WLAN: 802.11b/g), the Tablet has a USB port, a Memory Card expansion slot for RS-MMC (Reduced Size – MultiMediaCard) and a 3.5 mm stereo audio out connector. The On-board Memory is Flash 128MB which seems like a reasonable amount for a handheld device. The Standard Li-ion Battery 1500 mAh is supposed to give the user about three hours of use during browsing and seven days of “Standby Time”. The Tablet has a2mm power connector and I noticed that one of the accessories you can get is a power Charger for use in a car.
The recent update for the 770 includes VoIP app Google Talk so all G Talk Members can yak it up. And it comes with Opera (woot!) Check for details, upgrades and support on the Nokia site.
