Like I said earlier, the -nokia- 9300i phone I have uses full-size mmc. As 
do most of the nokia phones I've handled.

I didn't verify the whole list, but a quick glance at a store's 
compatibility list for a 1g mmc+ is: Nokia 6230, Nokia 6230i, Nokia 6600, 
Nokia 6620, New! Nokia 7710, Nokia n-Gage, Nokia 9500/9300 Communicator, 
Nokia n-Gage QD, Nokia 3300, Nokia 3650/3660,

Thats a -lot- of pre-existing in-house off-the-shelf MMC/MMC+ knowledge.

Just for completeness, the same site lists this for 'standard' rs-mmc with 
no adaptor: Nokia N770 tablet, Nokia 3230, Nokia 7610, Nokia 6260, Nokia 
6670, (NB. Not Nokia N70, N90, 6630, 6680, 6681 - select dual voltage 
And here's the dual voltage list: Nokia 6630, 6680, 6681 and new N-Series 
like Nokia N70, Nokia N90 and Nokia N770 Tablet, Nokia 7610, Nokia 6260, 
Nokia 6670, Nokia 3230

Looks heavily in favor of the full-size mmc, but maybe thats just me. (I 
wouldn't be surprised if the reason is "one tech guy thought it'd be cool" 
or "we expected to desperately need the space" and then momentum took
