Nice and cool… very orange!

Does it come with Macromedia Flash 7?

A few questions:

The new firmware does support streaming radio based in WMA?

Thanks in advance

Shockwave Flash.

I just loaded the 2006 os. What a let down. I expected it to have a simple IP phone and instead I’m stuck with Jabber or Googletalk clients. How long will it take to port a SIP phone I wonder? Otherwise, nice update and it works well - er except for the Flash player that only sort of supports Flash - we use Flash for video conferencing and that doesn’t appear to work.

Your right, it is a let down. the new stuff - the sip phone being locked…. and best bit is most people won’t be able to get a gmail account unless they are recommended so will not be able to use any of the new features. I’d be quite annoyed if I have bought this only to find that the IM and SIP is locked. I hope the full release will adress this.

um, who doesn’t have a gmail account yet? since everyone that has a gmail account has about 100 invites, you pretty realy have to NOT want one to not have one.

How does a gmail account help anyone with an office VoIP PBX? This was a major selling point for me.

GizmoProject is working on a SIP solution and will have it ported soon…

Let me point out a VERY important part of this release people: BETA FOR DEVELOPERS… What they are saying, it is not ready for the end user yet! Even though it seems useable, that does not mean all the features are included!

Comment by Josh 06.13.06 @ 10:56 pm

The final version is supposed to come with a 770 version of Gizmo Project’s software SIP phone.

I too flashed with the windows flasher, no hassle. I played with the color themes and went to blue…I tad too “candy” for me in the interface, but in my opinion, OS seems more responsive and the sound confirmation for new things (USB plugging in etc) were more noticable. looking forward to more 2.x enabled apps, but hey, BETA! It’s all good. Happy so far.

Oh yah - being aable to re-arrange the apps on the “desktop” is MAJOR feature that hasn’t been mentioned? Editable menu’s also. This is what I was really hoping for in the update, and the beta delivered.

I can’t find the windows flasher anywhere to give it a go, it doesn’t appear to be on Nokias own site at the moment. Anyone else know another link to it? I can’t find it on the Maemo website either.
