"As close to the perfect PDA phone that I've found so far"4.5 starson by sulayman
Pros: Compact size, sharp screen, great design
Cons: Stylus doesn't telescope, more buttons would've been nice, hard screen, 200mhz
Summary: Just got it today and so far I love it. The only major "gripe" CNET has with it is exactly what I love about it -- the lack of a slide-out keyboard. I hate the bulk they add, especially as they're usually too cramped for me to use. Since I use handwriting recognition for all my input anyway, the screen-only text input is actually a bonus.
I upgraded to this from the O2 XDA Atom and it was so worth it. The screen is sharp and bright, and the phone is TINY. It's an awesome compact size that fits perfectly in my hand.
My only issues with the phone are that the stylus doesn't telescope, so it's pretty small in my hand. Hopefully they'll make some telescoping stylii in the not-too-distant future. Also, since the screen was designed for being pushed, poked and prodded, it's a harder plastic and as such requires a little more pressure when using the stylus than I'm used to. The 200mhz cpu is also going to require a little getting used to, coming from a much-faster phone. But while a little sluggish at times, it's still more than zippy enough for my needs.
Finally, there's all of one configurable button -- the camera button. I'm used to phones with four or five readily-accessible buttons that I can map. Having one is a bit of a downer.
Those are all very minor gripes, though. All in all it's a fantastic phone and it combines pretty much all the key features I look for in a pda phone -- no keyboard, small, pretty, fits nicely in my pocket, etc.. Defintely worth the money.
