Not really, but remember to lock the device when you e.g. put it into
pocket or bag.  N810 has separate lock button, on N800 you can press
power key and then select[1] key to lock the keys+touchscreen, unlocking
is done the same way.  This will also save power because then the
display doesn't unnecessarily lit up when the touchscreen or other
keys are accidentally pressed in the pocket/bag.

Disabling the applets that you don't need also helps (if you reboot
after that, you will have minuscule amount of more memory available
for apps too :)).


[1] Select = the middle button in the 5-way rocker.
