That's the thing, although the 770, n800, n810, n810 WiMax and n900
form a series (of maemo-powered devices), only the n900 is a phone.

The others are "MIDs" or "Palmtops" or really fancy "PDAs" or
"Internet Tablets" or whatever you want to call them. They are not
sized as a phone and have no phone hardware or software.
