1-Exactly those ones - no ....that buyer - yes

2- the batts. were brand new and worked are working fine still...I use em all the time..daily...and still have 3 of them still in the plastic unused as backups.

3- These ones showing in the auction a few posts above are (from all appearances ) originals. The ones I bought 2-3 yrs ago from him were alternative bp5l batteries.

4- A- Back then?..fine ...took a while from germany to get to Canada...but I got 'em.

B- Right now?... fine ...just offered and he counter offered and I'll accept...right...now...for 2 .

Thanks man...the whole "Help me...to help you..." ended up with helping me too

I prob never would have looked for him for a few more years...there was no real pressing need...
I wondered for awhile what happened to the guy...been content with the back up batts I got...but the price ain't bad.
even if they have only 1/2 the charge ...at say 3-4 hours...not a biggie...I know a local business that rejuvs them here...so for the extra couple bucks...it's worth it..they'll be next to brand new then...that's saying of course that they have a poor max charge when I get 'em.
Worth the insignificant sum as a risk...considering the gain.

Well, you're not the one who should be thanking, thanks to you I'm now like five steps closer to finally buy this device!!

I don't really mind not being up to 100%, at least for now, my biggest fear is that the batteries might, somehow, explode inside the tablet or something... Is that even possible?

And how do I contact that seller? I can't sign in to ebay canada but i do have an account at ebay.com and ebay.co.uk

Glad to "let me..help you..to help me...to help you... to help me....."
ad infinitum
works for me.
I would suggest just going on the ebay applicable for your region...before you do...copy and paste the title of his ad....change the settings to worldwide and looky-loo ...considering he ships worldwide...he'll pop up with the right input info. So I don't think you need to use ebay.ca nor ebay whatever just use whatever ebay is meant for your geo- region.

Blow- up?!?
Real bad knockoffs possibly...I've never had a prob with any batt. personally..mind you I keep away from supposed high capacity alternatives and real obvious knockoffs.
And Hey... the n800 ain't a pinto man! (the car that is....small minor defect.....had a habit of blowin up reaaallllll gud)

I don't even know if it is possible, just playing it safe.

Well funny enough, I was looking for some stuff about the N800 and there is this guy who is selling N800's for 30$ and N810's for 50$.

I'm still trying to figure out if it's just a scam or if it's a real deal, but anyway, which would you recommend and why?

Would I be able to use any of these to go to instagram, or to read ebooks, or to videocall someone?

1- what venue is he selling them in? if it is trustworthy sale venue that you know...(ie like ebay) I would imagine he's the real deal. Not to mention ..if a scammer or thug wanted someone's money nowadays...he'd be trying to sell you a genuine "ipone"
He'd hardly be trying to ensare with a couple n8x0 devices.
Rest at ease there.

2- good price...If you had the money one of each is my suggestion...esp if it comes with batt . and all the gear.
Frankly ...even if it was just the device and stylus ...nothing else...it's still a great deal. If it were me...and he has a whack of them...I'd be buying at least 2 of each...that way you wouldn't feel nervous about bricking one...mind you....having a bunch is just a placebo to calm you...fact of the matter is...as long as you always read about what you want to fiddle with....and if it is some obscure thing or alt os that clearly states you could brick your device ...then don't be tempted to do that thing...pretty simple.
Frankly I have never bricked any of mine ...ever.....not saying it isn't possible...just always follow good advice and proper instructions and you'll not go wrong.

3- Instagram?...never played with it...not sure about whether it will work.
Ebooks?...oh yeah....quite a few ebook readers.fbreader is my fav....there is even a text to voice prog. so it can read them to you...
Video call? ...Skype was going to go down that road with the n8x0 but it never happened...so Skype has only voice and text.
Gtalk has it though...it works great between n8x0 devices ...I used it for a long time ...I believe it will work n8x0 to other devices ...haven't fiddled with it for a long time.

4- Most importantly ....you must not look at it as simply a gadget...or another internet tablet..or some kind of phone alternative...it is really a full computer...hell you can run a few distros on it..The stuff you can do is pretty cool. It is only limiting by your curiosity and intention.

To poorly coin the phrase and quote... the NIT (Nokia Internet Tablet)..."...Is the beautiful mistake the Gods made ...that man got his hands onto..."

REMEM. too ....the most dramatic reason why the device line of the n8x0 has little movement currently in devel or even in the forums is not because the device isn't good anymore...nor that people can't devel anything further...there is still alot of devel that could be done...vast amounts of new stuff...the fact is...many ...if not most in the community...moved on to the next platform available the moment it came out...n770-> n8x0->n900->whatever wanting more of whatever they were looking for...so it isn't like it just hit a brick wall because it is an old device or people couldn't do new stuff with it.....there is still alot of undiscovered country there in the n8x0 ...you could come up with the next great prog that brings more people back...perhaps a good backport...or a prog that people want on their n900's ...so really... movement in the n8x0 sections here is really about numbers...of users.

Hadn't thought about that, actually. Makes sense. I'm probably the only person in this country who's looking for one of these. He's selling in a portuguese website, but it's not verified, I mean, anyone can sell anything there.

I would definitely buy both if I had the money, but I can't even buy one without feeling bad for spending my money, so I'll have to take it slow...

I'm not sure of what I can do with a n8x0 yet, but I can't wait. I

Android ...ya..never found the desire to piss around with it though.
Replicant is the only one I would...I've thought about mucking with nitdroid but haven't had the time yet.
Lotta browser options...each have their plus and minus....some of them haven't been kept up in regards to the n8x0 ...but that is the webmonkeys who are constantly changing the dynamics of the browsers and care little for our (in global size compared to say iphone or android phone users) number of users...or they would be gearing their work to be compat with the n8x0 device line still. So for some browsers ...they may not show some more current content...or may not show bits properly. It is the ever changing social monster that constantly wants something new shiny and different. ...rather than being a n8x0 problem.

Distros? Really nokiabot! Come on man!
Look up what you can run and the people who have and their experiences is my best suggestion...some distros work very well...others passably ...others need work...it comes back to interested parties wanting to work on devel...puttering about and pissing around with stuff.

The current prices of the device make it a great investment to the hobbyist or curiosity driven hacker....It doesn't cost 100$'s or 1000's....it's pretty damn cheap...any cheaper and they would come in cereal boxes...and there are lots of them still on the used market.

Think of it like this...the scientists left the lab to work in a bigger lab with diff equipment....so this n8x0 laboratory is collecting dust...all the stuff you need is here...all the trial and error...all the programs...all the user experiences...just waiting for the next bunch of inquisitive scientists to come in and turn the lights on and get back to cool sh$t.

Unless there are any more questions...I'm heading back to my little section of the lab... ..best suggestion grab a couple ...1 of each...turn some lights on in the old lab...clear the dust off one of the virtual workbenches ....and start puttering ..creating ...discovering.
