[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Next revision of 770 hardware - any idea when it will be available?

I would be really surprised and dismayed if the next hw revision did not 
address issues of processor performance and max memory capacity as a 
first order of priority. That should be a given as it is with virtually 
all other consumer products when there is a hardware "turn" after a year 
or so.
