Stilling waiting for the Vario 4 & it looks like the X1 will be out around the same time & now this!

Nice!

If it is a mid level device with HSDPA and no GPS it's mine.

GPS just seems to make devices really really expensive (Diamond)

I'm confused by the 312MB storage size in the screenshot... is that internal storage? SD? Something else?

6 months till I can upgrade on T-Mob. With the pace of development I wonder what'll be top of the tree when I come to upgrade from my TytnII?

Christ,

I JUST got my Touch Pro...this is looking like a "better" device now. In all honesty the on-screen keyboard is so good you dont really need the hardware qwerty. This thing has the same ROM/RAM spec so the performance should be just as good. Damn man. I feel a bit cheated now. Might have to dump the Touch Pro on the missus and get myself one of these!!

EDIT:

Anyone else notice the lack of D-Pad on this?

In reality, I never really use the dpad on my Omnia, i've kinda trained myself not to though because I don't like the optical joystick very much ;) On that basis, I can live with it.

SF, how are you finding the TP? I have mine now, and simply don't like the form factor. Device is fast etc. etc., but it IS - as I feared - just too 'chunky'...

That looks sweet. Hmmm, I was thinking a Touch Pro and an Omnia but not maybe a Touch Pro and one of these! Would prefer it to have GPS though.....

BTW, Paul - is that chunky compared to my Vario II or just chunky compared to your Omnia/Diamond?

If it ends up also having GPS, then my Diamond will be getting the "hand-down" treatment!!!

The proportions feel a bit wrong to me. It's definitely fat compared to the omnia / diamond, but because it's thin and short, the fatness makes it feel fatter than the Kaiser, even if it isn't. If that makes any sense ;)

I like the Touch Pro a lot, but the screen resolution of this would be a draw. I hardly use the hardware qwerty of the TP, the new on screen keyboards are so good there's just no need. I dont find it chunky but then coming from a Kaiser/Hermes/Wizard in the past I guess you just dont notice.

This is looking like a serious winner. Higher screen res (to compete with X1 I bet), still looks just as thin as a Diamond. I could be tempted, flog the TP and get one of these instead? Missus wanted a TP so I could give her mine, get a new Compact or Vario IV on her upgrade to flog on ebay and get one of these for myself...

Also, how do Diamond users feel about this? Two flagship devices just came out and now they bring out one (literally within a month of the TP) that is in some ways better...

EDIT:

We need more info too:

1. Internal storage?

2. SD slot?

3. GPS?

4. TV out?

5. Dimensions?

There has to be some 'catch' with the HD to stop it stomping all over the Diamond, surely?

It does have GPS, HSDPA and all the other bells and whistles. :(

I also cried out why only 328MB onboard storage, well I guess we cant have it all.. ;)
