Hello It's hard to say, I will try to summarize the things that made
me smile and I can remember
but it is far from complete. Also I don't have a it2006 any more so
perhaps some things on the list are just plainly wrong

-it2007 likes to be online , with it2006 I often had to select
connection but with it2007
it is always connected. that is mainly handy when you don't know where
you have put your device , you can ssh to it and play some music. it
annoying to have to connect to "home" if you are at home . now I can
just boot the device and it will be online so it is really ready for
use when I pick it up
-the default user interface looks better and feels more responsive
-the thumb keyboard works better and remembers what you have typed
before. this is very handy if you often type password etc :).
-Clicking on the battery shows the estimated remaining battery time
(this does not work on the hackers edition)

So I am talking about such small things that when added up really make
the os more usable.
The only thing I hope is that I will reboot less then the n800, if
this is the case I might even prefer to use the 770 with it2007 over
it2007 on n800

770 love points:
-the hard cover , instant on/off
