Recently I was given a Nokia 770 by a Nokia Researcher/Developer in
Manaus. Specifically, I have some plans to (in the next month - unless
something more pressing comes up) make official Tor packages for the 770.

I doubt that it would make a useful Tor relay but the 770 does come with
software that will use proxies. Specifically, pidgin (the IM client)
appears able to use a SOCKS5 proxy.

I'll make some packages in the near future and then let people know
where to download them...
