Nokia 770 Discontinued?

Nokia 770A friend of mine called me at lunch time today asking me to order him a Nokia 770 which I’m currently enjoying playing with. So I log onto eXpansys.ie and I’m presented with this error. Ok, I figure, the Google index could be wrong. So I hit the eXpansys homepage and notice that the shiny Nokia 770 button that decorated the right sidebar is missing.

A little digging around later and Justin Mason reveals that the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet has been discontinued, eXpansys are no longer stocking it. Sure enough, they’re (Nokia) hyping up the Nokia 800, the successor to the 770, but did many people know about the discontinuation? Is this the possible reason for the recent dramatic drop in price or are Nokia and eXpansys sick of sending out 770s to Irish bloggers and gadget-heads?
