Well the guy on the video always says "You can do everything as like your computer at home" ok,nice transitional effects,cool eye candy UI... but does it play your HI-DEF games like NFS Under cover? or even counter strike? no? it's just a waste of money... buy a phone that can be used for text and call,so you can save up more cash

its good that nokia have left symbia and switched to maemo cuz symbian is good and user friendly but it just cant compare against other os such as the one on iphone. And by the way the n800 sure will be a formidale foe to the iphone 3gs and the xperia
