I use the latest hacker edition, which fixed some of the bugs in Opera 
but not all. The random crashes in Opera annoy me. The piss-poor media 
player doesn't play much of anything, unlike mplayer. These are some of 
the reasons why I won't be replacing my Nokia 770 with anything else 
from Nokia.  I want a device that isn't dependent upon a vendor for its 
main software. This is why I like the ASUS eee. It runs standard 
applications like Firefox and Thunderbird. With my experience with Opera 
on the Nokia, I doubt I will use any device that has Opera as its main 
browser. The people behind Opera should be embarrassed.

Why can't I just get Opera updated, or the email client? Why does the 
whole device need to be flashed? This is why I won't buy Nokia again.
