That's possible too. My theory was that they (=Nokia) have prepared 
filesystem image with maps and movies and they just dump it to card in 
similar way like firmware is flashed or ISO image is burnt to CD. But 
the image is prepared for slightly bigger chip. Either because there are 
more possible parts with slightly different size or the specifications 
changed for final product or someone simply made a mistake and prepared 
bigger image.
