Yes, I’ve joined the N770 Internet tablet brigade. I have to admit I like the inherent connectivity aspect of it, not to mention the large screen and the ease to dual purpose it as a sat nav.
One of the first things I’ve done is to install Pidgin (formerly GAIM) onto the device, a piece of pie if you follow the instructions at – http://pidgin.garage.maemo.org/.
Although when using the on screen keyboard the amount of screen real estate available to seeing the messages isn’t huge. But the ability to use MSN (or any other IM protocol as Pidgin is a cross protocol solution) anywhere around the house (or with wireless access for that matter) is a great advantage.
