Yes I am a bit surprised myself. I have the latest Firmware, according to NSU. However Ovi Store says "BETA" when launched, Maps is dated 2008 and doesn't appear to have turn-by turn/voice Nagivation and only has 'directions' function. I don't seem to be able to watch any Flash content i.e. YouTube.

Edit: Actually today the stock browser IS playing BBC iPlayer videos - but after a few seconds the picture freezes but the sound continues!

Unfortunately, as I have to send the device back in 2 weeks, I don't own it therefore can't consider 'tinkering' with it and installing Android.

On a plus side, the hardware build quiality is solid, and the UI is so fast I can take a pic under 2 seconds after I open the lens cover.
What Meemo seems to be is missing is a proper level of apps development, which I guess will now be directed at Meego devices.
