OK, for what it's worth, here are my thoughts after a day of playing with the phone. Maybe it will be of use to someone on the fence. Things I like: The touchscreen is great, OS is great, screen is great, trackball, etc. Let's face it, it's a real nice phone. Glad I got it, look forward to making a bunch of money from it. But here's what I don't like, and other comments: - No stereo Bluetooth AND no real headphones? Very nearly a dealbreaker! The stereo Bluetooth needs to be in the FIRST update. I can't live without my wireless toonz. - The keyboard is too flat. Couldn't they have raised the keys a LITTLE? It's so flat you can't touch-type, you have to watch your fingers. VERY annoying. - Minor quibble: when the screen is out, it's not lined up properly, it's tilted a few degrees. The Mr. Monk in me HATES that. - You have to open the keyboard to get landscape screens? Huh? - NO facility for an onscreen keyboard? Umm, folks, this thing has a touchscreen! - The "chin" doesn't bother me stylistically - not nearly as much as the out-of-line screen - but it's horribly in the way for typing. - I HATE that I am tied to Google. I have NO interest in Google and want nothing to do with them. Again, very nearly a dealbreaker. - I don't like having my personal data in the cloud. Didn't like it on the Sidekick, don't like it now. And don't tell me that I shouldn't use it for anything sensitive; that's like telling people "If you're doing nothing wrong, why are you worried?" when they complain about tapped phones. - T-Mobile gripe: There is apparently NO way to get my push Email account from T-Mobile, that I had on my Sidekick, to work on this phone. Grrrr. On the whole, though, nice phone. Since my only interest in it is as a development platform it will do me fine. I'd buy it again. Interestingly, though, my wife isn't impressed. She wants to keep her Sidekick.
