The Nokia 770 has been available for almost a year. It is a big seller which
recently had VoIP added (links on demand). This morning I exchanged notes
with someone who had apparently ported Tunpaint to the Nokia. It's
Debian-based, so should be rather rich in terms of the freely-available
applications. Oh! And it's half the price of the Origami. *smile*
Microsoft advocates themselves are making fun of the blog-generated hype over
the Origami. It is no iPod killer. It is no killer at all. It's over-hyped,
