Standard new-style HTC mains adapter. Cool. But I check the part numbers just in case so it don't fry on a UK HTC adapter... ( a-la ipaq / XDA dongle HTC sillyness)
Crap carry pouch thing.
Can't get the back off at first. Open the keyboard, hook nail through obvious slot, pull down and to the right. Fiddly.
Battery area reminds me of my t-mobile US wing( herald). Dunno why. Same black plasticy look?
USB cover is the same rubberised plastic-y as the back cover, similar to that on some recent HTC devices ( s620, s710) but slightly harder feel.
Trackball device looks and feels dirty or rough even when brand new.
Slimmer than I thought, angled keypad not that noticable / annoying.
Seems to staticly attract a disproportinate amount of dust ( black version).
Build quality is so-so. Unit has a HT seriel so was expecting better but the gap between screen hinge and keyboard is not uniform. May be related to black version 'noise' issues?
Comes with a 1gb 'Trancend' microd SD card installed. micro SD slot is fiddly and feels very stiff. Can't easily insert / eject the micro cards without use of a sim etc. Must stop biting nails.
Cute little robot pic on startup.
No I don't want a google account.
No, I DON'T want a google account!
OK I want a google account....( goes off to find all the decent gmail acount names are gone...)
What's that? I don't have enough credit on my PAYG sim to connect to the google server? AAAAAARRRGGGHHHH
More thoughts tomorrow once I can actually get into the O.S....
