Initial look.  It is very readable on the large screen of my laptop. However 
it begins to break down when I come at it with the 770.  It's a bit slow 
there (on a wifi connection) but tolerable.  

Layout on both desktop and palmtop screens are the same.  However with the 770 
(Opera browser) if I try to select an "OS" from the pulldown it won't 
recognize my selection.  The same holds true for the other pulldowns as well.  
I get a chance to select it just doesn't update with my selection.  The 
Minimo browser works as it should.

This page with a limited number of returns does suffer from the same "problem" 
as the wiki page does in that it already is getting too large to load in a 
reasonable amount of time.   On a high speed connection I get load times of 
13sec for Minimo if I choose IT2006/Any License/Any Status and right now 
there are only about 20 apps listed.  

IMHO there is too great a load time, and too much scroll time to work.  (up 
down)   You might try making the developers work from the Nokia to develop 
the page *grin*

Over all a big step in the right direction.
