N810 WiMAX already priced?
The WiMAX Edition of Nokia's N810 Internet tablet may already have a price, an online listing suggests. Retailer Buy.com is selling the system for a price of $456, a reduction from a supposed list price of $479. Nokia has not formally announced the cost of the N810 WiMAX, and has in fact declined to assign a release date beyond a rough estimate of "summer." This is meant to coincide with the official launch of Sprint's Xohm WiMAX service.
The addition of WiMAX will let users achieve desktop-like broadband speeds away from Wi-Fi hotspots, in theory as fast as 10Mbps. The tablet is known to have a microSD slot and 2GB of onboard memory, and software abilities including a full HTML web browser and VoIP telephony. [via TabletBlog]
