Nokia N800 tablet update adds Real’s music service

Mar 28, 2007 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

An available software update for Nokia's Linux-based N800 Internet tablet lets users access RealNetworks Inc.'s Rhapsody music store, said to feature three million songs. The update lets N800 users buy music, stream Internet radio stations, and access music editorial and album reviews.

Additionally, DeviceScape has once more updated its WiFi hotspot auto-login and presence application for the N800.

Nokia's N800 Internet Tablet is a small Linux-based web tablet with built-in WiFi. It comes standard with Internet radio and music playback software, and many additional music packages available for download are listed at the Nokia-sponsored Maemo Garage site.

RealNetworks says its new Rhapsody application for the N800 will let users create customized Rhapsody playlists, stream hundreds of professionally programmed Internet radio channels, and browse Rhapsody's music editorial and album reviews. Philip W. O'Neil, SVP of music at RealNetworks, stated, “Innovative integrations like these reinforce our vision of Rhapsody as a single service that delivers a personalized music experience that consumers love, at any time, and on any device.”


The Rhapsody software for the N800 is available now at no cost from the N800's “Tableteer” website bookmark (only accessible with an N800) or at Nokia's N800 site.
