Wow, I was sold on the Vox before, but the Toshiba might steal my heart.
I have an HTC Tornado now, but I'm not the biggest fan of the utilitarian design (especially the US "humped" version I have), so I'm always looking for something sexier to come out.
The vox sounded good, but the more I see it the more it reminds me of a Nokia 6620... its very short and stout looking.
Question: With the Qwerty extended, does the Vox feel strange to use? I don't like how the design makes it so that the screen is off to the right of the keyboard instead of the center. I didn't particularly feel comfortable on the Dash when I had it, I think that I would dislike the Vox even more!
Thought?

However the G500... wow, now THAT's a minimalist design! Its so tiny and sleek... I can't beleive so many people here are talking about the Vox and not the Toshiba! I want to hear more about that one...

The screen position doesn't bother me really, but then i'm used to it with Pocket PCs to a slightly lesser extent.

I have to agree, the G500 is nice... still wish it was WM6 tho ;)

Oh, a Vox preview is coming too, but 'A day in the life of Paul and his Vox' would probably be incredibly dull ;)

Great stuff Paul.

Not been too ecited about upgrading until now - I've fell in love with the Vox.

Think I will cancel my planned upgrade to the Graphite and move back to Orange for the Vox

But but but.... http://pdadb.net/ind...a...679&id2=728

Do you know who's going to take the s730 onboard? I can't see Orange taking it on so shortly after the s710.. they seem to like a big gap between their models..

Can anyone actually believe the S730 is going to pack all that technology into something pretty much the same size as a SP5? I mean there's 3G, GPS and a front camera included over the already packed S710, I just can't believe it. If its true I'll be hanging out for the S730...

I am interested.
And I don't mind at all that it only has WM5. I have WM5 now, and while WM6 looks nice, I don't necessarily needs html email and native word (I like documents to go and already paid for it...) so I'm really happy with what I've got. I just want a better design because let's the honest, the Tornado and its variants are pretty uninspired looking!

minor point: the new video contains the words "mini sd" a few times, should be "micro sd".

Thanks for the great vid!
