Thats why I kept away from the N770 and the N800 - but I finally grabbed
an N810, _because_ it has a keyboard. Yes, it is pretty much a thumb
keyboard. So, don't count on writing the next great novel on it, but it
is fine for entering smaller texts - like email.

I'm still looking for reasonable PIM apps for it, but well .. there is
Perl, Python and Ruby for the machine, so it should be possible to hack
something ;-)
