The same Nokia who gave us the N97's v1.0 firmware also gave us, 5 months later, the X6's v1.0 firmware. Which makes incredibly hard to believe that they've learned any lesson from the N97.

So you're praising Nokia for something that it hasn't yet done, has never done in the past, and has given no indication it is going to do? That's... bizarre. Very, very bizarre.
Well, in that...

So let's take Maemo, which is GTK-based, and Moblin, which is also GTK-based, and let's merge them together into MeeGo, which will be Qt-based. Wait, what?

If they wanted to generate hype for an upcoming product, they couldn't have picked a worse moment. All eyes are on Apple; today, and for the next few days.

Do you know what the 'X' in X6 stands for? Would it surprise you to learn that it stands for XpressMusic? It's not me who labels these phones as music-centric, it's Nokia.

LOL @ "Symbian^2 features". Reality check: (1) it's still Symbian^1, and (2) with firmware v40 the 5800 has the same "Symbian^2 features".

The original X6 traded the lack of a microsd slot with 32GB onboard, which was a fair deal. With just 16GB and still no microsd slot, this new version is a complete failure. A 5800 XM + 16GB microsd...

Any guesses about what percentage of people will buy a Nokia phone for use as a phone, as opposed to just as a dedicated sat-nav unit?

LOL! Thanks for the unboxing! I assume this is a loaner from WOMWorld/Nokia? I'd like to see their faces when they get (what's left of) the box back!
No USB charging? In 2010? Disappointing.
