Nokia 770 rant!

Arggh!

Why oh why am I having so many crashes and reboots with the Nokia 770? I’ve had it less than a week and the amount of times I’ve had to reboot it or kill processes must be up around the 100 mark.

For example, accessing pownce seems to hang the tablet half way through displaying some aspect of the page (I get the pretty mug shot and even the template background but then it dies).

Another one that doesn’t fail to kill it is gPodder. I’m really looking for a podcast client that works nicely on the 770 so I can get rid of my ipod (I only listen to podcasts) but nothing is even coming close. gPodder promises everything, the interface is nice, it has scheduled downloading, and is exactly what I need but I haven’t been able to download a single podcast with it yet :(

I’m starting to think I may have a hardware issue with this? RS-MMC card or even the 770 itself or maybe its just the crappy software that people put out for this device. I’m very tempted to write my own ‘podcatcher’ at this point and start entirely from scratch but would it be worth it!?

Does anyone have any success with the latest gPodder release or is it just me?
