Software Upgrade for Nokia 770 Internet Tablet Users

May 16, 2006 in Nokia Randomness

Today Nokia released a new software update for their Nokia 770 Internet Tablet. The update adds several new features such as Google Talk, a full screen touch keyboard, and improved memory performance.

You may have noticed some press about a week ago about the new partnership between Google and Nokia concerning Google Talk. Google Talk is Google’s “talk to anyone in the world” instant messaging and VoIP (voice over IP) solution where users can make chat with friends (similar to AOL’s instant messaging service) or make an internet voice call. Headset/microphone hardware required. In addition, Nokia has made Google the default search engine on the 770 Internet Tablet.

Nokia also announced some future initiatives with the Internet Tablet and SIP. SIP (session initiation protocol) is a standard that provides voice/video/instant messaging services between networks. One proprietary software client that runs over SIP is called “The Gizmo Project,” – here’s where it gets interesting – and apparently lets you make and receive calls over “public telephony networks.” Now that is potentially gigantic.

The upgrade will be available during the second quarter of 2006 in selected countries. The good news is you can just download the update using the link below.

I could’ve sworn I did a preview on this device. However I can’t seem to find it.

The Nokia 770 Internet Tablet is a handheld Wi-Fi enabled Internet browsing device. It isn’t a phone, it’s pretty much just a (touch)screen and a couple buttons. To be honest, it doesn’t really seem to have taken off (especially in the USA) – after all, why bother with a $400 device when you can buy a halfway decent laptop for a similar price which provides twice the functionality?
