Being Mobile at Le Web 3

I'm blogging this from the conference Le Web 3 using a Nokia N810. The mobile internet and ubiquitous connection aren't a piece of cake yet! I heard that the Wifi service cost them 130K€, which is a rip-off considering how crappy and slow it is. Will try to post some feedback later...

P.S. The N810 was graciously lended by Nokia for an hour. While I can see a future for this kind of device, and like the touch screen, its form factor, its keyboard, the lack of a GSM phone and the tiny tiny tiny characters on screen in the web browser won't make it for me. Surely they will grok it after a few more iterations, although I tend to agree that the screen size is the most limiting factor (I continue to prefer the comfort of a portable computer for my mobile internet use). I have to test an iPhone and a N95 now ;-).
