Perhaps the RS-MMC will become the preferred media for many new devices. It is small and I have seen 1GB cards. (I bought a couple of 512MB cards)

The video performance (using a Real viewer) is also remarkably good. I've taken to watching the BBC's "News in Three Minutes" at news.bbc.co.uk.
I'm the happy owner of a nokia 770 but watching BBC's "News in three minutes" doesn't work on my Nokia. Have you made some adjustments to your nokia?
Every review of the Nokia 770 I've seen so far indicates that only RS-MMC is supported and NOT SD cards. SD cards are too big for the RS-MMC slot. Has something changed?
Nokia should have used either a CF or SD card slot instead so I don't have to buy new media. It's keeping me from upgrading from my old Zaurus.
I bought a Canon SD450 and was pleasantly surprised to see that I could use the RS-MMC card I had just bought for my Nokia 770. It takes an SD card, but the MMC card is an alternative. My RS-MMC cards come with an adapter that makes the RS the same size as the MMC.
Is it possible to use an external hardrive with the Nokia 770 as soon as it out of the box, or does modifications need ot be done in order to use one.
That's sooooo sad.
