[maemo-users] n800 user reviews

I use N800 as a control panel for open source home automation systems
Plutohome and LinuxMCE. It works much better then 770. Moreover, one friend
of mine managed to setup it as Asterisk soft phone. It works like a charm.
As I see N810 is more appropriate choice for personal using: slide keyboard
and built-in GPS are very useful. But N800 now is just $250! So, it's a good
opportunity to buy it.
