    More appealing than earlier models, but it's expensive.

Nokia's N810 Internet Tablet, the third generation of the company's line of Linux-based Web devices, is a minor upgrade. The $479 device costs about twice what its predecessor, the N800, currently does, but the new product is far more appealing.

The N810 is slimmer and easier to hold than the N800. It also sports a slide-out keyboard--an addition that, together with the generous, 4.3-inch, WVGA (800-by-600) touch-screen display, makes Nokia's 802.11b/g Wi-Fi-only product feel more like a communications device. However, while the inclusion of the keyboard is a huge improvement, the design still isn't perfect. The top-row buttons seem positioned just a smidgen too close to the display, to the point that they impede use.
