marksurry - do you like it?
As you can see from my post signature I've used a few Windows Mobile devices and I can honestly say I think the Samsung is one of the best. Opera browser is a nice addition to the device and runs quick using HSDPA.
As mentioned earlier the qwerty keyboard works surprisingly well but you will find the occasional sausage finger grabbing more than one button at a time.
Battery life is ok for a Samsung device. I'm using the standard battery with Push email connected all day, 15 mins a day call time, couple of emails sent, few received, few SMS and I'm getting up to 2 days of battery life. The extended battery is getting up to 3 days life.
Ending calls can be tricky if the slide is shut. You have to click the centre button to activate the touch keys before clicking the red end call button. Rule of thumb is "if the touch keys are illuminated you can use them, if they're NOT illuminated then you can't use them". I think this feature is in place to stop you accidentally hanging up a call when pushed to your face.
Bottom line: Highly recommended device.
