Have you been sold on the idea of the Nokia N800 internet tablet? The company were very excited about it when we caught up with them at CES 2007, in particular about the device being open source – which makes it easier for developing third-party applications.
There’s already a good number out there – and the latest to be added to the list is Orb MyCasting, which is a very useful application for accessing digital media stored on your home computer.
Essentially, it streams the content via a web browser and media player. And you can also remotely record TV programs using Orb’s Digital Video Recorder (DVR) function and then play back recorded programs on the N800. And best of all, it’s completely free – comparing favourably to the £10 monthly fee charged by 3 for using Orb with its X-Series package.
