    No, but the Transcend 8 G SDHC class 6 card works fine in the n800. 
Presumably this would also work for the n810.  It might be faster and 
cheaper too (~$50 or less) than the class 4 Sandisk. 

    Mine came yesterday with a 'disclaimer' in the package to check the 
Sandisk or transcendusa web sites for compatibility with the device 
before opening the package or there will be a significant restocking 
charge.   Sandisk didn't list the Nokia n8xx series, but did list some 
of it's phones as compatible.  Transcendusa.com was down for some reason 
when I checked last night.  Given I've used a 4G SDHC card since June 
2007 in my n800, I opened the package and inserted it anyway -- works fine.

   I also know from experience that SDHC cards don't work in a lot of 
cameras, especially those bought in 2006 or before.  This probably 
applies to lots and lots of other devices, including computer 'card 

    There is a small USB SDHC 'conversion' device that lets one read a 
SDHC card via a USB port.  As noted above, my laptop's card slot isn't 
SDHC compatible.  However, my 4 G SDHC card came with the conversion 
device.  It's nice to have a conversion device for porting things 
around.  So if you don't have one and it's a cost effective option when 
getting a SDHC card, get the reader too.
