Dear early adopters of the N770,
as a potential platform for some of my Zaurus applications I consider to add Nokia 770 versions.

Since I am still waiting to get one and have to learn the (different) SDK first, I would like to use the time to hear about your experiences compared to a Zaurus.

Some questions coming to my mind:
* how does the display compare (brightness)?
* is the screen resolution of 400x800px a recognizable improvement?
* how good can it be used without a built-in (clamshell) keyboard?
* what about operation time?
* device handling (thicker, thinner, larger, smaller)?
* how stable and complete is the software compared to a Zaurus Sharp/Qtopia ROM?
* how is performance compared to a Zaurus?

Many thanks,

-- hns

Would they have the same problem like the ported Gnumeric does of disappearing if it is minimized?

Yes. Though gnumeric has now been fixed (so I read yesterday). There is also talk on the mailing list of way apps are identified for the taskbar, which should mean that any X app is 'restorable'. Hopefully Nokia will implement this as it'll increase the number of apps that can be run with little or no effort.

A comparison between GPE and the stock Nokia image would be great! Is there somewhere I can try the images and instructions on what to do? A quick search didn't reveal anything.

Try here (in the experimental software packages): http://www.kernelconcepts.de/~fuchs/

Note that you should remove the majority of the applets as these stop dyntick from slowing the clock and therefore your battery will die sooner. Also no sound atm afaik, though bedboi on #gpe was working on that, and no battery reporting (this is something I was working on - borrowing the dbus messages that Nokia use - but had to put on the backburner as I'm a bit busy atm. I'll get back to it soon).
