"It's small, lightweight, and sturdy a capable device"3.5 starson by drunkrage
Pros: Full keyboard is nice, back lit, and easy to type on
Touch screen works well and the 5 windows are enough
Phone quality is great on both ends
Nice speakers on the phone
can create its own stand for watching video or in clock mode.
Cons: Battery life could be better maybe a day and 1/2 with moderate use.
Android 1.5 (but then again, I don't know the difference)
Charging cord is a little short
Summary: I came from a old flip phone, so this blew me away.I think the 5 windows are more than enough. I usually don't need instant access to the application in any case. The phone does a nice job of syncing all your Gmail and Facebook contacts, but it can create duplicates. A little time linking up the contacts is not too much to ask. At times the phone can be a little laggy, but I haven't ran into a computer device that doesn't have the occasional hiccups. It is a solid mid-grade smart phone device that has a physical workable keyboard. The Motoblur software has its pros and cons, but overall it does a nice job of updating for those that cannot be a second behind in the update that their friend had a turkey sandwich for lunch. It is geared for the virtual friend ******, but it is a phone I don't think an adult would be embarrassed to use.
I don't find the screen too small, and anyone that does is just used to the megatron screen real estate that seems to be the norm now. Personally I find it refreshing not to pull a laptop out of my pocket. The delayed OS updates are only annoying in that they have to develop them with Motoblur in mind, and that Cnet thinks anything over 2 months old is the equivalent of a Commodore 64. It is worth the price.
