This is like asking "what do peope use their bikes for? I bought one
and can't find any use for it".
Well if it's of no use for you, sell it. It's ridiculous to ask others
for guidance, obviously if you haven't found a need for it, then you
don't need it.

Another reason to sell it.

Oh great, you are comparing an ultra low-power 320MHZ ARM CPU (RISC)
vs a 1Ghz x86 CISC.
Here's some learning for you to do:

...and this is the fault of the device why?. It's like complaining
about a car because a certain lane on a highway is too slow.

Yes. You should get a hobby or another "distraction". Clearly the N800
is a very bad toy.
