I got my Nokia 770 reflashed today and got to where it can load up
Slim server pages over wifi via the Opera browser. A pretty
impressive feat given the state of the software on that device
currently :)

My first impression is that rendering and loading is very slow. I
suspect this is due to to the code heavy-framesets that the current
webpages use, as well as the beta nature of the 770 software.

I am using the WebPad browser interface. Any suggestion for any other
"lighter" browser skins that I could test with?

When I get back into town next week, I'll have lots more time to play
with it as well as post screenshots. In the meantime, I just wanted
to share with you the fact that I turned on my slimp3 and played a
song via the 770 tonight, and almost wet my pants in happiness :)

Have you tested the Handheld skin? I'm using it every day with my old
Zaurus (running Opera 7.x). But with the Nokia's bigger display this might
look very basic.

D'ouh! I forgot that skin existed. Just tested with it and it looks
*fantastic* on this screen. Very responsive and easy to use. I
promise screenshots this weekend.

Thanks for the tip!

As the originator of the "ohmigodihavetogetanokia770tocontrolmysqueezeboxen" thread (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=14419), I will be *very* excited to see screenshots.

If you want to get really nerdy I bet you can port a screenshot app to the 770 rather than taking digipics of the physical device.
