    Okay so I've only had it a couple of hours but already it looks to be a great little handset, don't see anything wrong with the screen at all, people on other forums moan about the resolution but it looks great to me.

    I'm on software version 2.1-update1 is this the most up to date? If not and I have to do an update does it wipe any data or does it not toch that side of things?

    Also do I have to have a Gmail email account to be able to download apps?

    Thanks for any replies.

    2.1 is the most upto date 2.2 will arrive sometime between end of September and January, and yes you do need a G Mail account.

    Based on other update schedules, a minimum of 3 weeks (likely more) after the release to the non-network-specific (ie. SIM free, bought full price) models.

    No, you need to be rooted. Only Super User access can get into system/app folder.

    I got one a few days ago, and am totally smitten. Being that bit smaller is a surprising plus. Also I think the touch sensitive home buttons are better than tactile buttons because you can quickly whip your thumb down to press them.
