I have my Nokia 770 since Wednesday and I have been playing probably too much with it than I should. Ah nevermind.

  • The screen is really crisp and legible. They actually claim to have 225dpi.
  • I upgraded to the newer release, 42-9. Doing so require using a proprietary flasher program. That is a bit odd.
  • Opera, the default browser is quite fast, and works fine on the 800x480 screen. I hate Opera User-Agent. Shows up as IE.
  • Input with virtual keyboard is painful, even if you have prediction of what the user input and Input with character recognition works even less, but I also have issues with Grafitti2 on the Palm. That is probably my awful handwritting. Actually the Newton didn't do bad at that time.
  • I still wonder why it does not come with a PIM by default. Even if it is an Internet Tablet, it should be able to replace a Palm for the PIM features, as one do not want to carry another device. I have installed GPE, still waiting for the calendar to work. I wonder what are Nokia plans to that regard, but for me it sounds natural to have PIM on this kind of device. Long term would be to add a cell-phone, but that is hardware.
  • There are a bunch of usability issues that I have to report, mostly using it without the stylus.

But my overall impression is good.
