I've got an n800, just upgraded its OS from OS2007(bora) to 
OS2008(diablo), so some of my remarks may be out of date.  I also cant 
answer to anything 610-specific, but in many ways it's an 800 with 
different slots and peripherals.

I use GPE calendar.  It has no specific provision for phone number, but 
there is a separate GPE Contacts program that does that.  The two don't 
seem to talk with one another.  Last I looked, the GPE Contacts did not 
pave provision for street addresses -- only electroninc comm. (yes, taht 
includes telephone).  I stick street addresses in one of the slots for 
electronic addresses for protocols I don't use.  It'll probably bit me 
someday, but it hasn't yet.

The utilities->notes program created HTML files, which can be read 
almost everywhere.

There are regular reports that 8G SDHC cards work fine on an N800, 
although some manufacturers produce bad cards and they don't work.
I've heard rumours of 16G being OK.   Apparently Nokia only guarantees 
what's actually been tested and found to work;  their hardware seems to 
be more capable than their guarantees.

I suspect the CPU isn't fast enough for that, but I could be wrong.
