Gadget of the month: Nokia 770 internet tablet

What is it?

A pocket-size tablet that allows you to access the internet wirelessly or from a bluetooth connection. With a high resolution, 800×480 pixel touch-sensitive display, it has been described as the ultimate accessory for your mobile phone (check whether it’s compatible with your handset though), or a lightweight alternative to your laptop.

What will it let me do?

Surf the web, access e-mail, listen to the radio, view images, and a software upgrade due in 2006 will allow voice calls via the internet.

Where can I find out more?

The product is expected to be launched in the UK this month, but no details were available on pricing as we went to press. It is a new category of product, so expect to see a lot more publicity in the coming weeks.
