I hear you on the rumored update...  while the increse in memory looks
to be nice it's pretty nasty looking.  I like the blackness... though
the built in handle / stand is slick.

Features I'd like to see are

• voice over bluetooth - I mean how the heck did Nokia not do this
particularly with VOIP in mind.
• better memory swap - no browser quits
• slide out keyboard - though each time I really think I want this I
consider that I use my 770 more to receive than to input info
• a slightly faster processor never hurts
• flash 7+ so we can do youtube and other streaming video sites.
