gotta agree... and thanks for the N9 info - i was kinda wondering about the underlayment, and there was no way of knowing by reading the glossy info on the unit (i guess 'Linux' is not something the suits in Marketing think is good for brochures)... i will take a closer look at the N9 (still want an N900, but darn, my N800 just won't die and still suits me just fine)...
