Nokia has confirmed that it is no longer going to produce the N810 WiMax Edition tablet. A company official told Phone Scoop, "The Nokia N810 WiMax Edition has reached the expected end of its lifecycle. We will continue to follow the WiMax network development and new product decisions will be considered based on the evolution of the business."

Both are underpowered with sketchy and somewhat dim touchscreens, and a GPS chip that isn't worth the silicon it's printed on. They are also missing important features like A2DP or video phone conferencing with Skype.

Nokia seems to be aware of the N810's shortcomings, it appears that there is a new model in the works, along with a significant upgrade to the operating system (called Fremantle). Rumors have it that the upgrade will have a much better processor (TI OMAP3), 3G HSPA along with the usual WLAN, as well as a graphics accelerator. Nokia will finally fix the A2DP non-existence issue that has been identif...
