I've been thinking about getting a small, light device that will allow me to surf the web PC-style on the bus or train and I was wondering what people thought about the Nokia N800 Internet tablet.

It's got Wi-Fi (unlike it's predessor - the 770) and a full-screen finger keyboard.

The 770 does have Wi-Fi! and a onscreen qwerty keyboard.

The N810 model is out in November (or thereabouts).
Comes with a higher clocked processor and proper pull down keyboard.

As said above though, how are you going to browse on the train/bus ?

I don't know why I thought that only the N800 had it.

GPRS for the Internet on a bus.

Since I started this thread, I've discovered a device called the Datawind PocketSurfer 2 and I was wondering if this is better.

It's got a 5" screen, built-in GPRS modem (but no Wi-Fi), loads up a web page in 7 seconds and it's only 180.

You get 20 hours free usage per month for a whole year and you can get unlimited usage for only 5.99 a month.

Using GPRS/EDGE?

I'm actually thinking about getting this device, instead:

Probably but according to the Firebox site, "Acceleration technology allows you to zip around the web like greased lightning".

180 for the device and 20 hours surfing per month isn't bad, though - is it?

Some people think that, for the expected price of it, they should've included 3G.
