Right now it's being dubbed version 0.9999 since it's still lacking A2SD, CompCache,...

We've already seen the Zeemote JS1 bring wireless nunchuck gaming action (and its vaguely copyright-infringing name) to Sony Ericsson and Nokia handsets.

We're not particularly fond of over-sized battery covers in general; your average smartphone is chubby enough.
