    They finally came out with a tilt screen I've been asking for for the last year (I came to Android via being a Nokia Internet Tablet user). Aside from a questionable keyboard layout, this is very much the hardware I've wanted from them for a year.

    4) T-Mobile USA 3G

    But, no such luck. Until they release a version of this thing with that feature set, I probably wont be going back to Nokia for my phone.
