OpenTable launces mobile version

Lots of people are big fans of OpenTable for easily making restaurant reservations via the Internet but the page is a bit big when trying to use it on a small device like, say, an iPhone.

To help make using their service easier for those people, OpenTable has released a version of their webpage formatted for mobile devices called OpenTable Mobile.

It’s the same service, just using a better layout for small screens.

Jeff Jordan, CEO of Opentable, says “with OpenTable Mobile, we can now deliver the convenience of online reservations to diners who are on the road or out on the town…now mobile users can take the power of OpenTable.com with them wherever they go, to instantly find and book available tables at more than 8,500 restaurants.”

To use OpenTable Mobile, just point your browser to:

Asus Australia national retail manger Emmanuele Silanesu told Australia’s Current that the company was “obviously looking at other form factors rather than just a clamshell.”

Specific details were given but Silanesu implied that the new model may not be branded an “Eee PC” because of the new form factor and introduction of a touchscreen.

According to Nokia, the N810 will be able to seamlessly switch from WiMAX to Wi-Fi and back again depending on which is available.

Other than the addition of WiMAX support, not much is new about the N810 WiMAX Edition.

No word on pricing yet but it should be available before the end of June of this year.

New Nokia N810 Internet Tablet Hits Stores

In the market for an Internet tablet and don’t want to break the bank (too badly)?

Take a look at the new N810 from Nokia (replacing the N800), retailing for $479.

I haven’t seen any reviews YET (sure they’ll pop up soon) but many people have been anxiously awaiting this products release so expectations are pretty high.

Please keep in mind that this unit cannot connect to the Internet on it’s own unless using WiFi. Otherwise it will need to connect through your PC via a USB connection or to a mobile phone network via a bluetooth connection to your cell phone (if your phone supports it, if your provider supports it, blah, blah blah).

Features:

  • Slideout QUERTY keyboard
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Built-in GPS
  • Integrated 802.11b/g
  • Build-in stand
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • VGA camera
  • Built-in microphone and camera
  • Battery life = 4 hours with continuous usage, 14 days standby
  • …and a whole lot more…

It’s supposed to be at some major chains such as Best Buy and CompUSA right but when I checked it wasn’t listed on their website, so if it’s not there it should be very soon.

For all the specs, check out the product page at Nokia’s website.
