The built in "Internet Call". It works very well when your wife/son
have an N810 at home, and you're working until 11pm practically every
night for 3 weeks. Being able to say "night night" to my toddler's the
only thing which has kept me (vaguely) sane.

As Quim's asked before - what are you using to define "PIM"? The only
PIMish apps which ship with Maemo are Contacts and, arguably, Email.

Eh? Define "worked properly": microb's JavaScript engine is perfectly
fine, and, IME, browsing is only hamstrung by CPU performance, memory
usage and screen size (and, to a degree, screen resolution).
