My “solution” was to finally succumb and/or give up and buy a Nokia 
N900. ;)  The N900 solution’s acquisition cost may be out of your 
budget, though:  I paid about 613 CAD including taxes from NewEgg.ca. 
An iPhone costs a similar amount to buy if it is not subsidised by 
signing at least a 1-year term contract with a carrier, though. 
However, the N900 is a far more open device, which makes it far more 
useful for me.  Even if I was willing to sign a term contract, which I 
am not because I do not need one with my Fido monthly plan and I do not 
need a data plan, the N900 has not been released in Canada so I would 
still have to pay full price for it.
