770

I'm looking 770's development since it's announcement. I'm pretty impressed of what all these Gnome developer's could do in such small time when they have fixed platform and a well designed UI (for these platform's needs).
I'm really looking froward 770 and will probably buy one (I'll just wait the real thing and see if basic things for portables, as USB charging and MSC support; and battery life). And as Mono and Java won't be suited for core apps (mainly because of memory), they'll probably provide lots of small and useful apps for tasks like syncing with desktops and web services and so on... It's really great to see Mono being ported, and now running, in this device!

I just hope, by the 770 gets released, this device provide some kind of graphical sketch program (like Alias SketchBook for TabletPCs), so I can make simple storyboards and general sketches while away from home! I'm sure this kind of app won't be in Java or Mono, but I'm sure there's a hole to be filled by these VM/Soft Platforms! =]
