    Just FYI, the Linksys is a refurb. BUT, it apparently can be flashed w/WWDRT.

    Shipping for me is $9.00 as well. I like but their shipping has sometimes been a “deal-breaker” for me.

    Stay away from AMF Pinbusters… It is awful compared to Wii Bowling. Same goes for the Brunswick Wii bowling game. The controls are lowsy.

      @jonthomasdesigns: I had one for 3 months before selling it via Craigslist and finally moving to an iPhone.

      – 3.2 MP camera
      – FM radio
      – robust media options (video and music)
      – TV out
      – Bluetooth stereo + peripherals
      – can run Python!
      – small and light
      – incredibly loud stereo speakers
      – most Symbian S60 3rd Ed apps will run on it
      – supports Flash apps and websites (Flash Lite 3, I think)
      – really long battery life — I was a heavy user, and charged every 2 days
      – MicroSD card slot
      – assisted GPS
      – optional stylus (you don’t have to use it, but it’s fun to have)

      – Symbian operating system has pretty much been outclassed by other smartphone operating systems by now; get used to navigating a hierarchy of screens and folders
      – all plastic case (I didn’t mind, but a friend said it looked/felt cheap)
      – touch screen isn’t as fancy-schmancy as iPhone’s – no multi-touch, for instance
      – camera wasn’t great
      – not a great portable gaming device (as opposed to the iPhone, or even older Nokia phones for that matter)

      I switched to an iPhone almost solely because of the app store, because developers are doing cool things on the iPhone platform. The Symbian platform that Nokia uses has been around forever and is mature, which is good (stable) and bad (stagnant).

      Bottom line: I sometimes still wish I had my 5800, esp. when I run into one of the many problem areas of the iPhone (like oh, say, recording phone calls, or running more than one app at a time). If you want a Swiss Army Knife type of phone that can do a little of everything, the 5800 is useful. If you need to do a ton of messaging, note that it doesn’t have a physical keyboard of any sort.
