That Nokia N800 is pretty nice.  I have always been a big Nokia follower. 
In fact, Nokia is all I have ever owned and I have owned quite a few of 
them.  My most recent dilemma was whether to get the E70 or the E62.  Both 
nice phones.  This N800 looks pretty neat.  However, as much as I have 
tried to persuade Nokia to provide better support for Macs, they still 
leave a lot to be desired.  I want a phone that can sync very well and 
easily with my computer.  Since I switched to being an Apple user last 
year, I have found  what I have been looking for.  Apple makes very well 
though out software and hardware and marries the two perfectly.  Apple may 
not be for everyone, but I sure enjoy this new world I have found. 
Linux/Unix is awesome and it is awesome that Apple realized that as well 
and built OS X on top of Unix.  This was the key selling point for me.  I 
can do all of my Unix stuff, all of my windowed stuff, and now all of my 
phone stuff and it all speaks very nicesly together.
