My 1st post here: my 1st Nokia770 for 5 days, my 1st comments !
I really like the look and feel of the machine, the screen is  
impressive (specially compared to the PDA I've owned), having Linux  
embedded in such machine is a very good point, ... More pros to come  
soon... I hope ;-)

The 1st issues I'm meeting:
1) the mail app is too buggy to be used every days: received emails  
disappear, clicking on an email title doesn't open the proper email, ...
2) the newsreader app is buggy too: I'm not able to subscribe to  
various RSS feed (try rss.macgeneration.com),
3) I haven't found a way to tranfer files between the N770 and my  
Apple PowerBook using bluetooth,
4) I'm not able to pair the N770 with my Treo 650 (unlocked GSM): the  
pairing procedure is stopping with an error after I've entered the  
pair key on the 2 machines,
5) more cons to come soon... I'm sure ;-)

Happy if anyone on this list can help me and/or give me good advices !
I've installed XTerm (twice: the 1st time, I wasn't able to find  
XTerm icon in "Extras" menu), but I haven't enable the root access  
yet (best procedure to to this?) and I'm planning to buy a 1Gb RS-MMC  
(best price in Europe?) to add swap and symlink "/" to it.

BTW, is this the best place to ask such questions?! Of course, I've  
browsed the web and forums before posting ;-)
