I decided it was time to do an entire post using my bluetooth keyboard and my Nokia N800 internet tablet. Last night we had some friends over for dinner and everyone was amazed with both the clarity and size of my Nokia's screen. Obviously that is the key point ... my ease of viewing web based content as well as upgrading when new software is created for the Nokia's Linux based operating system.
One change in my web browsing habits is that I've split up my RSS feeds. My work focused feeds remain on my PC; but my leisure based feeds are now on my Nokia. It's nice to sit on my bed after a long cross-country ski with my feet up and read for fun. It's just plain comfortable! Thus attached to this posting are eleven screenshots taken on my Nokia N800. They demonstrate how easy it is to use and read RSS feeds via the Nokia. In my case I was leaving the frozen Northland for a trip via the NY Times Travel Section.

I've yet to find an application out there which allows me to edit jpg files. More than likely, I'm not looking hard enough! Oh yes, one final point ... the RSS Feed Reader that came with my Nokia had no problems importing an OPML file. Thus, I was able to import feeds in mass via a file transferred over from my PC.
