I don't know about the N770 in particular as I had the N800, but I can say  
I had much better results with the Minimo browser than I did with the  
built in Opera-based browser before I upgraded to OS2008. I see it's  
available for OS2006 as well so you may want to give that a shot.

Claws Mail is also available for OS2006 which is a great mail client.. I  
actually use it on my desktop as well. It's not perfect on the Tablet as  
far as how intuitive it is (again: I am not speaking from experience about  
OS2006 so I don't know how it differs), but it's a full-featured client  
for sure.
