You. Must. Be. Kidding.

Seriously - WTF are you smoking?  And can I have some?

The /lack/ of built-in cellular capability leads to less complexity,
telco control and the frankly *brilliant* property that when I upgrade
my phone (which I'm always going to carry, anyway - it's not large)
from GPRS->3G or 3G->HSDPA my 770/800 instantly gets the extra

It's also (along with the Seagate D.A.V.E and that other
Bluetooth/wifi hard drive that I can't remember the name of) the start
of the /proper/ use of Bluetooth to create a /real/ Personal Area
Network where your data is on a small brick in your bag, your
"connectivity cube" (talking wifi, wimax and 3G) is in your pocket,
your voice headset sits in $ORIFICE (suggestion: ear) and it's all
tied together over Bluetooth or its successor.

I don't *want* convergence: I want quality devices doing their
individual jobs, with no duplication of function.

I don't *want* a browser on my phone: I want it on my 770/800!  Ditto
IM clients, VOIP (which shouldn't, in my ideal PAN-filled world, live
on the 770/800) and video players.

Nokia: if you could have all this working by - let's say - 1Q2008, I'd
be grateful.  Q2 would be acceptable, however ...
