Well, guess I'm mad as you. I recently travelled to Germany from the US and 
bought the N800 just prior to the trip specifically since I didn't want to 
lug the laptop.  It worked great.  No bluetooth keyboard -- would have been 
nice to have one!  Used it for email, ssh, sftp, VoIP Telephony (Gizmo 
Project), and uploading trip pictures (my camera uses SD cards) to my web 
site.  I call it the closest thing to a WiFi enabled laptop that fits in your 
pocket you can buy. (that doesn't run an OS I'm adverse to).  Anyway, I 
recommend it!

I found a cheap (< $10 USD) pocket paper pad portfolio thingy with a zipper.  
Ripped the paper pad out, got adhesive-backed Velcro, stuck it to the back of 
the N800 and inside the portfolio.  Still fit in my shirt pocket.  And made 
it quite resistant to dropping.  Not perfect, but I didn't have time to 
figure anything better out before the trip.

Good luck on your trip and tell us how the N800 works for you.

Thanks, Steve
