Ubuntu Coming to Nokia N800-Series Internet Tablets


image_8384_largeimagefile Ubuntu Coming to Nokia N800-Series Internet TabletsThe Nokia N800 and N810 Internet Tablets are wonderful little devices, because they give you virtually the same online experience as a laptop but in a much smaller form factor. The operating system on these handhelds, however, is starting to get a little dated. We already know that Nokia isn’t going to make the leap to Windows Mobile or OS X, so it’s time to turn over to Linux.

The latest word on the street is that Nokia is working on Ubuntu support for the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. Ubuntu is the flavor of the month and it seems that everyone likes that particular build of Linux. The current developments have Ubuntu running off an SD card, but it wouldn’t take a quantum leap to get Ubuntu as the default OS for the tablet.
