The thing is that I don't expect hobby developers (the freeware side
of things) to make the device usable. The problem is that Nokia is
selling something that is rather expensive considering how little it
actually does out of the box. (And that tiny screen makes the "it's
only an Internet device" excuse extremely absurd - who can stand to
browse the Web very long with these things?) It's Nokia that has
screwed us all, *including* the developers who were also hoping for
something more open and more usable.
