Paul says the phone is SIM locked so we'll need to wait for an unlock solution to come. :(

I'm considering upgrading from a Gen 1 Orange San Francisco (with the nice AMOLED screen). How would the screen compare to that?

Not at home atm but will take some!

So how is it? Is it nice?

It has a fair bit of metal (or metal feel) on it, it feels pretty nice. Head and shoulders above a San Francisco!

How big are the partitions on the device?

Have you rooted it yet?

:D

Not rooted yet, in a cafe so don't have all my 'tools'. :P

Internal SD card is 2GB (microSD is also supported), /data is 755MB.

Lol.

Also wondering about unlock.

Locked out of the box, investigating unlock!

Phone is no AMOLED but it's pretty decent.

Oh, zergRush doesn't work on this device.

Ooh. I tell you what, 2GB internal SD plus 755MB for data is pretty nice. A lot like the U8800 was.

Yep, it's a decent CPU/GPU. MSM7227A, Cortex A5 ARM7 with NEON. CAF already supports the platform so it shouldn't be that difficult to bring ICS to it.

I'm going to be in the UK next week, thinking of picking one up to replace my xperia play (which I dropped and then it died /sadface)

Really hope it can be unlocked as im on Swisscom (glorious unlimited data in swissrollland).

Anyhoo, I'd like to see some pictures of the UI and how it differs from stock.

How well/smoothly does the Google Music app run? My main problem with the Blade atm is how laggy it is.
