fyi. A US based company, Colorado V-Net apparently has ported their Home 
control technology to work with the Nokia Internet Tablet. Here is the 
url to the www page for a www site associated with CEPro magazine that 
shows the device in action.


Note the quotation in the sidebar:

Just a few days ago I had corresponded with the company to make 
precisely that recommendation, i.e.

>     4. The Nokia 800/810 can be configured with a VNC client to

Here is the url to the www site for Colorado V-Net which also has a 
Zigbee based wireless lighting control solution:


Colorado Vnet is founded by the same individual who, some years ago, 
founded Colorado Memory Systems.
