@AC re tablet...
I agree with the AC who posted that this should have been a tablet.
The 810N series could have been a winner if it also included a phone. You then have a device that could not only send e-mails, surf the web and also handle decent sized spreadsheets. It didn't have to be windows based, but could have been linux based and/or supported open office.
With companies now 'webifying' their ERP and employee applications, then support for a full fledged web browser that didn't default to WAP would have been a good thing. Pair it with a blue tooth head set that had the ability to use voice activated command and show caller, id, you could carry the netbook in your bag/briefcase/whatever and still have the ability to walk around and not fumble with a large device.
Definitely an extreme machine that would have done well in the netbook space.
So lets see how this puppy evolves.
Thumbs up in that they're getting closer to getting a good idea. If only they went Android and not Windows. That's a fail, but still a thumbs up for encouragement.
BTW, were they to make this a tablet, it would have made an excellent map device. After all, they did buy Navteq and with the auto industry hurting, walking, biking, etc ... with a nice larger easier to see map? Its a no brainer.
