PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The 770 is not for everybody. If you want something for practical day-to-day use, you're better off buying a PDA or smart phone. And a word to Nokia: make nice with Microsoft. I would love to be able to run Windows Mobile 2005 on this device in place of your version of Linux. It's both fast and complete. Trying to impress the Linux geek crowd is not a good business plan, nor is trying to shoe-horn Linux onto this type of platform. Using Windows Mobile 2005 would make this a far better, and far more successful, mobile device." And part II, one month later: "Right now, I feel like I've pretty much wasted $380 on the 770. I continue to work with it the hope I'll find some hidden feature or application I've missed so far."

He just wanted to buy 800x400 mobile tablet. He wasn't biased towards any OS, though he was attached to some qualities.

By your logic Gnome devices cannot be criticized because their users for some reason should have been be prepared to whatever low quality standard it offers.

I used to have high hopes for linux mobile devices, but so far all of them seem to carry the same types of flaws again and again.

Not biased?
Using Windows Mobile 2005 would make this a far better, and far more successful, mobile device.

Gnome(???) devices can be criticized, no matter what quality standard they have, the only problem of this device is that has low memory, other problems seem only in his head to me...
