Nokia Linux-based web tablet on sale at last

Nokia has begun shipping its Linux-based Nokia 770, the so-called "Internet tablet", according to the Finnish giant's direct-sales website.

It's a little late. When it was launched last May, the 770 was scheduled to ship in Q3.

Measuring 14.1 x 7.9 x 1.9cm and weighing 230g, it's founded on a Linux development platform called Maemo, created specifically for the 770 and its successors from the ARM port of GNU Linux Debian 2.6.

On sale now in a number of European states, including the UK, the 770 costs £245/€360
