The M900 is definitely a much better replacement for Touch Pro 2, Touch HD, Tilt, and derivations because of its proven, time-worn parts, Samsung cpu never given to lag, low-power super-star SiRF III GPS, new 3D support (besides previous FPU support) in the Samsung S3C6410 cpu, etc. Still lacking a d-pad to be an all-around contender.

The irony is if its quality is good enough still to make it quantity popular.

A fingerprint reader is basically a mini scanner, and with the right software it can act as an optical joystick. I don't know if E-Ten have implemented this on the M900, but if they have then there's your d-pad substitute. :(
