This entry is being slowly typed out by stylus on my new (!) N810 internet tablet. I've been using it for aa coupl of days now, and I think that I'm starting to get the hang of how it operates. The screen, although almost painfully vibrant and sharp, is a little smaller-rhan-optimum, and I'll readily admit that it's zoom fezture is not as nice as the iPhone's. (And the layout of the screen is more favorable for righr-handed users than southpaws like myself.)
It does have a nice fingerboard that slides out from underneath, allowing for faster typing than the stylus method of above, or the hunt-and-pray method of finger-typing on the screen that the iPhone uses.
Although I've now set up a Skype account (to really capitalize on the strength of this device over the iPod touch), I haven't used the device to talk with someone, so I don't know how it will look. I know that Skype has developed a version to work specifically with this device, so we'll see how it goes once I get 'round to it.
Still a few weeks before Chile, so I have a little more of an opportunity to figure out what all's what...
