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?
