Prominent technology news site ArsTechnica reviews Nokia N800:
In contrast to the frustration I often felt when using the 770, the N800 was a joy to use. The expanded memory, support for SD cards, and most importantly, the beefed-up CPU eliminated the endless delays I experienced switching between applications on the 770. The N800 handles multitasking like a pro. I was able to have two or three web pages open along with a couple of other applications and performance was very smooth—even with an Internet radio stream playing. The menu system is much more intuitive, and within 15 minutes I was comfortable enough with it to navigate the menus without having to think about them.
