This could turn out to be an awesome service if Sprint is willing to be reasonable with pricing. Nokia’s Maemo powered device has long been a hackers’ fav. I’ve wanted one for a while, but could not justify its $400 price tag. For $150 though, it will be a great toy to have. Perhaps once the newer model gets introduced, the N800 price tag will get lowered like the N770 did.
Say $150 for the device and $30/mo ($1/day) for WiMAX service. I would get that in a heartbeat vs. subscribing to AT&T’s EDGE right now for $20/mo on the E62. Granted I would need to carry the device with me wherever I go, but as is, I already carry a laptop bag wherever I go– being able to ‘almost’ replace the laptop with a MID would be awesome.
