Really nice review!. I don't own a n800 (nor a n770) but I can agree
with you in every aspect of your review.
One thing I have always disliked of the Hildon UI is the eye-candy
part, the icons are just ugly and inconsistent.

Is there any official HIG for maemo? I only found
http://maemo.org/maemowiki/MaemoUserInterfaceChecklist on a quick
search in maemo.org.

Some stuff like the dialog actions (the delete email thing you
mention) could be borrowed from the GNOME HIG.

Congrats for your good review.
