The Nokia N800 and N810 internet tablets can be attached to a Windows, Linux or Macintosh computer using a USB cable. In normal mode this lets you transfer files to and from the tablet's memory card (or memory cards if you have more than one). You can also use the same cable to update the tablet's firmware when it is in update mode.

The N800 and N810 contain a large number of built-in step-by-step tutorials and a complete user guide, but a lot of tablet owners seem to be unaware of their presence.

Here's how to find and access them.

How to browse through all the built-in help files

Very very simple, just click on the Applications icon (the green squares on the left) and then click on help. You'll then see a long list of all the topics covered by the tutorials. Double-click on the topic you want to know more about, then click on the specific tutorial you want to read.

When you've finished reading a tutorial, just click on the X in the top right hand corner to close it.

How to get help for the feature you're currently using

Again, easy-peasy. Just click on the menu for the application you're currently running (this will be a grey bar at the top of the screen). One of the options will be Help, just click on it.

Applications runs separately from their help files, so you can close a tutorial without closing the app it discusses.

How to find the hidden user guide

For some reason the manual for the N800 and N810 is tucked away in the Documents folder. Here's how to find them and read it:

1. Click on the Applications icon (green squares).

2. Click on Utilities.

3. Click on File Manager.

4. Double click on Documents on the right.

5. Double click on User Guides on the right.

6. The user guide is displayed in all its different language versions. Double click on the language version you want (the English-language versions are near the bottom of the list).

7. The user guide will be opened using the PDF reader application. To turn a page click on the small arrows at the bottom of the screen, and to zoom in and out click on the magnifying glasses.

The author of this site was engaged in a very interesting discussion over on the Internet Tablet Talk site's Newbie forum, which forms the basis of this mini-tutorial. An enthusiastic N800 user was annoyed by how badly and slowly their tablet rendered the nytimes.com website. They said it took ages to load the page even on a broadband connection, and when it loaded it looked absolutely awful

More about the Nokia N800

The Nokia N800 was introduced in early 2007 as a replacement for the Nokia 770. It had a much faster processor, double the amount of RAM, and many other significant improvements such as a built-in camera for video calls, built-in stereo speakers, two SD-sized memory card slots and a built-in stand. It also had what many people considered to be a more attractive curvy steel-and-plastic casing. To put the icing on the cake, Nokia took the internet tablet range within its Nseries sub-brand, usually reserved for its high end expensive smartphones.

The N800 also had a new operating system, Internet Tablet OS 2007, which replaced the 770's OS 2006. There was no version of OS 2007 available for the 770, and software written for the 770 would not work on the N800. 770 owners, many of whom had only just bought their tablets in late 2006, felt abandoned by Nokia as the support for their tablet disappeared.

In late 2007, Nokia announced the N810, which was nominally the replacement for the N800. It too would have a new operating system, OS 2008, and featured a built-in keyboard and built-in GPS satellite navigation receiver. However, Nokia seemed to learn its lesson from the 770 fiasco, and the N810 wasn't really a replacement for the N800 but more of an alternative model. The N810's processor and memory is identical to that of the N800, and OS 2008 was made available as a free upgrade for the N800. An N800 running OS 2008 is technically identical to the N810, running exactly the same programs at exactly the same speed. The N800 even has some of its own hardware advantages to counter the N810's keyboard and GPS: the N800 has two memory card slots as opposed to the N810's one, and the N800 has a built-in FM radio receiver which the N810 does not have.

In truth, the N800 and N810 are the same tablet in computing terms, they just have different casings and different external hardware features. If you've bought an N800 it will receive support for just as long as the N810, because underneath their skin they are the same device.

To replace the somewhat chaotic keyword system, we've introduced a human-edited contents page of all the tutorials on the site. You can access it by clicking on the link on the right, under the title "Tutorials by Category". The first item of the index is a brand new article, a general introduction to the concept behind the Internet Tablets and what they can do. Obviously most of you won't need
