First, it is obviously related to the pulse, case looks similar, but it is nicer to hold, thinner, and with a bigger screen and the loss of hardware buttons.

Spent the last couple of hours installing everything I can think of :-)
Will give it a couple of days, but is nice and smooth and seems much faster than the pulse.

Trying to get my head round the fact is has a built in sd-card - strange.

Got the B160 kernel on there now (I think))

No front facing camera. They ALL have 4GB of internal flash storage, since modern devices don't really use ROM's (Read Only Memory) anymore. So you have 2GB available (/HWUserData) because there are a bunch of other 'partitions' that use the other 2GB including /system /data /cache /cust_backup and so on.

I originally ordered mine from CPW when it was showing in stock, they took my money. I then received an email saying thank you for your pre order. I spoke to them and they advised me that they have never had stock of this handset and don't know when it will be coming in. Eventually after complaining to a manger they refunded my money which took 2 days to go back into my account.

I ordered mine then from Handtec £177.99 and it was delivered the next day. They still have stock for next day delivery.
