Bora, I think. You can use Chinook if you upgrade your N800 to OS2008, 
the same OS as the N810. Most new development is targeted towards OS2008

Here is the code name breakdown with the OS that shipped with the 
device. OS upgrades are available depending on the device.
gregale = OS 2006, N770
bora = OS 2007, N800
chninook = OS2008, N810
