First of all,. it is quite fun playing around with this port of Python. I think some people did a hell of a job!
I tried several examples on a real device (the orginal NGage) and emulator and I found out that the weather stuff and my own internet access is not working properly anymore: after working for two times, it somehow does not get to the maps on the internet anymore. When I use the same url in the WAP browser it works fine, so there isn't a problem with the WAP gateway.
