While you can't view flash on it, the browsing experience beat out what I've had on the 770/N810.

My N810 is gathering some dust now, I only had about 10 hours on it before it sadly lost some of it's appeal to me. Unless Nokia pressures providers, I don't see the successor getting any decent data rates; the ones I've seen up here are all iPhone only.
While I agree that Apple smartly provided the iPhone with good out-of-the-box stuff, you ought to try, if you haven't, the tear browser, especially with java turned off (except when needed) -- it's very fast, and I find it beats the pants off the browser on the touch (hence the iPhone).
