From the (machine) English-translated version of the original Finnish article:
The Nokia 510 web tablet went into production nine years before the first iPad hit the market. A hint of the device was dropped last week when journalist David J. Cord Revealed in his book " The Decline and Fall of the Nokia"that the company had plans for a tablet computer. According to Cord the project was dropped 45 minutes before the device went into production. The information is slightly incorrect.The project was indeed dropped - but not before a production run of around 1,000 devices was completed. Most of the devices ended up in the crusher!.......The tablet was' intended to be a true consumer product. It had an e-mail client, Opera web browser, a calendar and a noticeboard application. There was a stand to keep the device in an upright position on the kitchen table.
The M510 tablet was never to be... Nokia did not release its first internet device until four years later. 2005's Nokia 770 sported a four inch screen and looked more like a smartphone than the era of the tablet. Despite some healthy sales it was not exactly a smash hit....
The specifications are also published, presumably lifted from the manual or box:
Nokia M510 specifications for web tablet
Operating sytem Epoc (early Symbian) Applications email, calendar, Opera web browser, noticeboard Input touch screen with finger and pen control stylys, scroll wheels and buttons, external keyboard Memory 32 MB SDRAM + 32 MB of flash Display 10 inch LCD touch screen, 800 x 600 pixels Weight 1876 grams (4.14 lb) Battery life 4 hr Connectors USB, PS / 2, headphone WLAN Nokia C111, 11 Mbit / s (802.11b), range 300 meters outdoors, 20 meters indoors
These are seriously impressive for 2001 - wi-fi built-in, 800x600 screen resolution, and so on. Anyone who's played with a Psion Series 7 or netBook will get a rough idea of what EPOC could achieve. In fact, this exact potential is what drew the original partners in Symbian together, to create an ecosystem that ended up comprising well over half a billion devices over the next ten years.
