No, as it depends on personal taste and needs.

The GPS jsut tells your device "where" you are. It does not matter if there 
are streets or even not. So of course you can use it for outdoor activities. 
The disadvantage is that the N810 is not that robust as (for example) the 
Garmin handhelds.

As it is a complete LInux computer, you can use additional calendar software - 
of course. But it's not the strength of the device.

> 4. Is there a program to take notes that works with windows and what is it?

Several, like the built-in notes app (which stores html files) or xournal. 
Depends on needs and taste.

I run a 4GB card without any hassle.

I doubt that. The cam just sits in the "wrong" direction. Its main purpose is 
VOIP with images, not being a cam.

Enjoy your gadget,
