Nokia (Helsinki, Finland) and Cisco Systems' Linksys® division (London) launched a product bundle called Go Wireless at Home for European markets. The package includes the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet bundled with a Linksys high-speed wireless router or gateway.

"The digital home is currently one of the most exciting trends in the consumer electronics industry," says Ari Virtanen, vice president of Nokia's Convergence Products. "Nokia aims to be at the forefront of that development by providing solutions that introduce mobile devices to the digital home."

The Internet Tablet provides mobile broadband access to the Internet via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection with compatible mobile devices. Its wide, high-resolution screen is said to make it ideal for viewing online content away from a laptop and/or desktop computer. The Internet Tablet includes a Web browser, e-mail client, newsreader and media players for music and video. It runs on Linux-based Internet Tablet software, which is based on desktop Linux and open source technologies. Because it is open source, the company says, developers have already created more than 100 applications for the device. The bundle is available in its first phase in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, France, Austria, and Belgium.
