Nokia Tablet as PVR  

Nokia announced the WiMAX-enabled version of the N810 tablet at CTIA Wireless 2008 last week. It can be used on the Sprint/Clearwire XOHM network later this year.

Now Monsoon Multimedia has announced support its HAVA player on the tablet, allowing customers to view and control their home TV from anywhere in the world over WiMAX or Wi-Fi. It will be available by June for the Nokia Webtablet as a free direct download.

The TV source is connected to the HAVA device installed in your home (which costs $99-$250).
Users can view their home TV on multiple PCs within the home network or simultaneously on a Nokia Internet Tablet at home or anywhere in the world over the internet. The company says it has “all the functionality of a Slingbox, but with many more features.” The SlingPlayer Mobile also runs on Symbian phones.

HAVA provides controls for Pause, Play, Rewind, Skip, Record, Guide, Menu, Navigation using touch-screen (stylus) inputs or key press inputs on the tablet. The Tablet can also function as a “PVR-on-the-go”, allowing users to record their favorite TV shows and later watch them on their tablets from local memory.
