I own the predecessor N800, and I'm pleased with it. Comparing the N800
(~240EUR) to the N810 (~370 EUR): the N800 has no GPS and no hardware
I'm using the N800 together with a bluetooth connected Wintec WBT201
which is working ok. The software I use is maemo mapper, which displays
the OSM slippy map as default and can also track GPS tracks. One nice
thing is with maemo mapper you can download OSM map data at home in
advance and check OSM map data while your there and answer questions
liks: "are these traffic lights already in the maps?" - no need for
expensive mobile traffic.
I've never tried to install JAVA on it nor doing any voice recording -
and obviously I can't say a word about the N810 GPS.
But I would be very interested in other peoples experiences here ...
