Who knows, possibly Nokia will release an update to Symbian^3, the next iteration of Symbian for this device. Symbian^3 looks really polished and the UI is much more thought through than the current S60 5th Edition and should really rock (it has a beautiful task manager for instance).

Also, I personally think it's HUGE that Nokia gives away free global offline GPS navigation, including voice-guided directions, with every new smart phone. Even new Androids like the Nexus One can't say that as you only get online (i.e. network-coverage and data-plan dependent) navigation with that version of Google Maps. Granted, Google Maps Navigation does pre-trip caching, but it's only a little bit around your planned route. Nothing too usable in remote areas, especially considering global travels.
