If you share your internet tablet with others (or if you’re worried about someone using it), you should clear some or all of your personal data from the Web Browser. This is to prevent others from viewing your browsing history or, more importantly, from gaining access to your password protected web accounts.
To clear personal data:
1. Open the Web Browser by selecting it from the Task Navigator.
2. Tap the title bar of the browser.
3. Select Tools, then select Clear.
4. Select the data you wish to clear, choosing from: Browsing history, Cache, Cookies, Passwords, or All personal data.
5. Confirm the action to clear the data.

The Nokia internet tablet is a handy little device to do a great deal of tasks when you’re on the go. By adding these seven applications, you can do even more.
Applications I’ve added to my internet tablet:
1. GPE-Calendar – a great little calendar app that helps me keep track of all my appointments. By also using Erminig, I can sync GPE-Calendar with my Google Calendar.
2. VNC Viewer – remote control software allowing you to view and interact with any computer running a VNC server.
3. Canola – This application turns your internet tablet into a mini media center for playing music, videos, podcasts, viewing photos, etc.
4. Maemo WordPy – a fully functional WordPress client for blogging.
5. Other Maemo Weather – Applet for your Home screen for displaying weather conditions.
6. Gnumeric Spreadsheet – GNOME spreadsheet app.
7. Pidgin – a multi-protocol IM client. Definitely needed if you chat with protocols unsupported by the native client.

Received my Nokia N800 Internet Tablet today, thanks to the guys at Tech-Recipes. Davak and Q, thank you for this great internet appliance! Now I can blog, recipe, and Twitter when I am out and about. I will be doing some indepth write-ups in the future, but for now, here are a few screenshots:
Screenshot1: Tech-Recipes on the N800
Screenshot2: Twitter (with a different N800 theme)
Screenshot3: Accessing one of my PC’s via VNC.
I’ve also read some PDF files, listened to FM radio and MP3′s, watched a video, and posted to Twitter using Google Talk. Lots of exploring yet to do. The screenshots were taken by installing a VNC server on the N800 and accessing it from my PC. Still need to find an app to take screenshots from the device.
