Bugs delay Nokia's internet tablet

Nokia has delayed shipping its much vaunted Linux-driven internet tablet because of software problems.

The 770 Internet Tablet was due to be released last month, but Nokia has confirmed it is delaying the launch to iron out software bugs in the system.

The device, launched to a fanfare of publicity earlier this year, is now expected some time in the fourth quarter.

The tablet is designed to allow users to access the web and e-mail while on the move, and is seen by Nokia as a lighter, basic-functions alternative to a laptop.

The 770 will sell for just over £200 and be available in the US and Europe ahead of other markets.

It is designed to connect to the internet via WiFi hotspots or Bluetooth short-range wireless using an external separate phone.
