Nokia N810 First Thoughts at brighthand!

“The N810 is bigger than a typical handheld but smaller than a laptop. Basically, the idea is to give you access to a larger screen than you get on a smartphone on a device that will still fit in your pocket.It offers two main features that take advantage of the larger display: web access and video playback. In my initial testing I concentrated primarily on the web browser, and was very impressed.The N810 gives as close to a desktop browsing experience as I’ve seen on a pocket-size device. True, its screen is only 800 by 480 pixels and 4.13 inches, but aside from that you might be hard-pressed to tell you aren’t using a desktop browser. It easily handles Flash-based animation like YouTube, for example. I pulled up Brighthand on it and was able to read articles, check the forums, etc. as if I was on a regular laptop, albeit one with a very small screen.” Read more here:

Palm Centro Review at phonearena!

“The left side of the phone houses the volume rocker at the top, with a programmable side key just below. On the right is the Infrared port and a pretty much hidden MicroSD slot. It ships with a sticker alerting the user of its presence, but once removed the slot is integrated almost seamlessly into the silver trim that rings the sides of the phone. The slot is pretty hard to open, and users without fingernails will find themselves removing the battery door to access the MicroSD card. That battery door monopolizes the back of the phone, but at the top the user will find the speaker and 1.3 megapixel camera. The stylus tucked away at the top left, and on the right is a rubber plug that hides an external antenna port. Along the top of the phone is a sliding switch that quickly puts the phone into vibrate, and the bottom is the standard Palm charging/data port.” Read more here:
