Whatever you think about Nokia, you can't fault them for trying. The new Nokia 770 is one of those niche defying devices, a sofa surfer's delight. The closest competitior I can think of is Sony's PSP games console which has been hacked to provide maybe half of the Nokia's capabilities, and Nokia appear to have thrown their device wide open for developers and users to embrace and extend, compared to Sony's miserly lock down approach.
Interesting stuff and the Nokia backed Maemo project to help commercial and non-commercial developers is at significant odds to Sony's "you want an sdk, you pay us mega-bucks" approach.
It's a long term approach and makes me think of the football match I'm watching: AC Milan vs Liverpool in the European Cup Final, first half AC Milan (PSP) went 3-0 up, second half Liverpool (770) got 3 goals back and looked far stronger, it goes to extra time in a draw, what will happen?
