	That update fixed a variety of problems. Are there burning OS issues
that should be addressed? There is a whole community that is churning
out Maemo ports of all sorts of software. There is a Maemo port of Claws
and it's very useful. Why should Nokia duplicate that?

	I believe there are several Maemo ports of this type as well. Same as

	Apples and oranges, literally. I for one do *not* want it to be an
iPhone competitor. Then the beauty of this device will get lost in the
noise. I want a device much like it is now, separate from my phone.

	It appears that Nokia has made the conscious decision not to use this
experience to make a so called smart phone out of the tablet. Thank
You!! If that's what you like, I believe there are several options
available from Nokia. 
	Just my $0.02, YMMV.
