Well, since you brought up "truely open product" and "expectation
management," what are Nokia's expectations about when the 770 will be
a truely open product (i.e., I can run all free software on the device
without losing any functionality)?

This has been the #1 reason why the device has mostly sat unused in my
house rather than constantly traveling with me and sucking up a lot of
my time. I honestly expected based on Nokia's (admittedly limited)
advanced advertising of the product that that would be the case
immediately, rather than at some unspecified point in the future.
