Edward Chester,I beg to differ about resistive touch screens, for the following reasons:1. They can be used with gloves on. (Have you been outside lately? It's cold.)2. Once you are used to the amount of pressure, they work perfectly.3. Capacitative touch-screens give up if your fingers are too dry.4. Screens made of plastic are less likely to smash (as my HTC Magic did). Although not exclusively resistive, plastic is more widely found on resistive devices.
Hmm this is an interesting handset. I have to admit to being a fan of the slide down keyboard, not necessarily because of typing speed, (which I find fine on most touchscreen keyboards, including on my BB Storm) but more because the amount of screen space the keyboard takes up while typing. I much prefer having a full screen to view while typing. However, in reality I would need a Snapdragon 1ghz, and a capacitve (and possibly slightly larger) screen before I would consider this handset.
Please re-check its features - its a dumb phone - can not communicate with others thru BT, can not synchronize with your laptop / PDA addressbook. become too warm (hot, battery is only good for few hours actual use. This may be good for 1st time mobile user, never tried "features" before. If you are thinking to switch-over please have a 2nd thought.
