Thanks a lot for the reply. I'm not too thrilled with the idea of  
replacing the font that Nokia carefully made work for all screens  
with some random font of mine. Since Opera is closed source I don't  
think there's anyway to change that either, right? I guess this  
leaves me without very many options.

Oh well... other than the font issue, (which is huge to me) this  
device is quite nice. Maybe someday Nokia will release a firmware  
update with the option of a larger install footprint but with  
multilingual fonts.
