Transforming the N80 into an N80i

by Moshe Yudkowsky

Brian McConnell wrote a highly-persuasive article about the merits of Nokia's N80i cell phone. It's created a genuine quandry for me: should I purchase the N80i (which has WiFi) or the FIC Neo1973? The Nokia has WiFI, which makes internet telephony possible on the phone itself; but the Neo1973 runs Linux...

Now the decision is slightly harder. Tommi, a developer over at Nokia, posted an note on his blog about a software update that transforms an ordinary N80 into an N80i. Notes in his blog indicate that not all updates are successful quite yet, but it also means that if you want an N80i you might be able to take an N80, readily available everywhere, and transform it into an N80i.
