Arne,

Do you know if there is a client already available for the i780?

The generic client they offer for download for Windows Mobile devices doesn't support the screen resolution of this device......

Helio

Argh... :-( No, in this case I don't think it's yet supported by a free download but hopefully they will update their public clients with the i780 version soon. Have you contacted them?

Not yet. Probably a good idea.
