    N900. 500 inc tax and I probably would have got one to play with despite knowing the screen is too small for me.

    The Archos android tablet is looking the more likely a purchase now.

    One of the hardcore Maemo guys got a chance to play with an N900

    …and preceeded to install Open Office, GIMP and the LXDE user interface on it. Even at the premium pricepoint it’s targetting it sure sounds like an epic device.

    Hmm. That makes it rather more tempting.

    Maybe I will end up getting one for testing purposes….
