Non-Powered USB...can't charge - not sure about keyboard, but I assume not

are preinstalled in much (think it's around1.8GB) of the 2GB internal and

Wimax is next year... I've been told it's "later."

No FM radio either...

Anything else - I'll likely have an overview blog post up in the next 24-48
hours once i get back to NY have time to think it out a bit with some
extended use.

If there's something specific you'd like to know, please let me know...
