I've got a Nokia N800. Much less expensive than the N810, but 810 has some
things 800 doesn't.
Battery life is from 1 day to 1 week or so depending on how I'm using it.
Wifi reception is the best of any device I've used.
2 SD slots that are SDHC compatible so plenty of storage.
Fits a jacket or shirt pocket just fine.
I use GPE calendar, todo, timesheet; camera, gnumeric and Maemopad+ daily.
PDF viewer occasionally. Am very happy with it. Look forward to getting a
bluetooth keyboard (perhaps iFrog).
One regret is that I didn't put a screen protector on right away. Now has a
scratchy feeling place on screen where I write the most. Oh, and the
hand-writing recognition works much better for me than Palm's Grafitti 2
One gotcha to watch for is that Maemopad+ db main table data is lost if the
device battery runs out with the application open. In my case I was able to
recover the db with data from its backup table using a cli sqlite3 client.
