Re: Crippled Nokia?
"N78 comes crippled at factory default. So do a couple of other 3rd edition phones."
N78 has a new VoIP architecture and the product was launched simply without a built in client. It's fully VoIP capable, but just needs 3rd party VoIP apps and/or an update from Nokia to add a client based on the new architecture.
The same happened with the N80. Initially it was launched without the full integrated VoIP client, likely to get it onto the market quick. Later they relaunched it as the N80i, although they did release the same features as an update to the original N80.
Crippled? Well that depends if it was sold as a VoIP phone. If it's not one of the advertised features then it's not crippled. i.e. do your research and buy a VoIP capable phone in the future ;)*
* - though in my opinion, VoIP is not worth the effort anyway, especially if you expect to use it on public hotspots.
Anyway, as for the 5800, it's a different kettle of fish entirely. First S60 5th edition phone.
