I want to use it. =)

An easy-to-use wrapper like that can encourage the creation of scanner
software for business applications: consider the use of nokia internet
tablets as part of a cost-effective distributed system for inventory.

Many specialized scanning devices on the market are disgustingly high:
for about $2000, you get a mobile computer/scanner with stats
(Intel XScale PXA255 Processor @ 400MHz, 64MB RAM, Windows Mobile 2003)
that the N810 can wipe the floor with. At lower prices, you devices with
archaic OSs and hardware specs. At $700, you get just the scanner
without the computer. The nokia internet tablets are a steal!

I would love to see more linux-enabled devices being used in small business.

And maybe, if these tablets get enough attention, nokia can roll out a hardy

mobile device running maemo that's designed for industrial environments.

Tell me if i'm crazy?

Kind regards,
