Nokia says it will offer an upgrade for its 770 Internet tablet that will bring better memory performance, VOIP capabilities and a pre-installed Google Talk client.

Nokia says it will ship a firmware upgrade for existing and new 770 Internet tablet owners. The OS 2006 upgrade, expected this quarter, will bring better memory performance and a "refreshed look." It will also feature VOIP capabilities and a pre-installed Google Talk client with a full-screen "finger" keyboard.

Additionally, the OS 2006 firmware release will support standard SIP-based VOIP clients for enterprise use, such as SIPPhone's Gizmo Project, which allows users to make and receive calls to and from public telephony networks.

The 770 tablet appears to have only a single one-eighth-inch headphone jack, but the jack actually supports mobile phone headsets with microphones. The new release will have drivers to support audio input, potentially enabling a variety of audio applications in addition to VOIP.
