I have a 770.  It's a cool little device, but, honestly, I don't use it 
all that often, as I'm not usually in places where there's wifi but I 
don't have a laptop.  I'd say go for the 800, though, if you want one of 
the two.  Support for the 770 -- both from Nokia and the community -- 
seems to already be falling off, and all the new "cool" stuff is being 
developed for the 800 and the other new one in the 800-series.  Some of 
it is backport-able, some of it probably not.
