The Nokia 770 has been on the market since late last year but it hasn’t exactly taken the world by storm. This might change if a recent deal between its maker and Google comes to fruition.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Nokia and Google are going to team up to create an updated version of the 770 that will come bundled with the instant messaging application Google Talk pre-loaded.
It’s not clear at this point if this new version of the Nokia 770 will include any other improvements.
In any case, the WSJ is reporting that the announcement of this new 770 version will happen on Tuesday.
A Description of the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet
The Nokia 770 is an unusual product for this company, as it doesn’t have any cellular-wireless capabilities and currently can’t be used as a phone.
As its name suggests, this is a device dedicated to Internet access. It comes with a web browser and email application, as well as software for listening to Internet radio, reading RSS feeds, viewing images, and playing audio and video.
It has both Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) and Bluetooth 1.2, so it can access the Internet at a hotspot or through a mobile phone.
In addition, it includes a slot for reduced-size MultiMediaCard (RS-MMC) cards for more storage. It comes with a 64 MB RS-MMC memory card.
Its 4.1-inch, 800-by-480-pixel Touchscreen display has a landscape orientation.
It is 5.55 inches wide, 3.1 inches tall, and 0.75 inches thick (141 by 79 by 19 mm). It weighs 8.3 ounces (230 g).
A complete overview of this device can be found on Nokia’s web site.
