I'm not sure if this is a framework thing, but in general, I'd like to see 
better offline support.  I realize the goal is "Internet tablet", but 
sometimes I like pulling the data, and reading it offline.  Things like 
reading my e-mail on the bus or a plane.

Also, syncing.  I'd like to be able to sync my contacts with my phone, my 
desktop, etc.  Also, as applications like Dates or GPE develop more, sync 
my todo list and date book also.  I think that something like OpenSync 
could be part of the base platform -- especially from the perspective of 
running a background process to acknowledge requests from the external 
computer or phone.

I'll also second the bluetooth headset -- and an integration of the 
keyboard GPS applet into the core.


PS - Probably more a legal thing than a technical one, but it would be 
really cool if Nokia could work a deal with Google so that Maemo 
Mapper could offically use Google Maps data.
