  1. The hardware is quite similar to the original N810, with the addition of a small antenna on the back and a slightly different color design. Aside from the extra radio for WiMAX, the internals are the same; the 400MHz TI HS OMAP 2420 CPU, 128MB of DDR RAM, and 256MB of Flash RAM remain unchanged. Chris Staley, Nokia VP of sales, told Ars that the WiMAX-enabled N810 will also include some firmware enhancements and an update to the Linux Internet Tablet OS 2008 that includes an improved e-mail client, seamless software update functionality (which will eliminate manual updates), and support for Chinese character rendering in the browser and RSS feeds.
