But we found this Smartphone's design, with its integrated keyboard (an especially welcome feature), intriguing enough to warrant a look before the phone's adoption by U.S. carriers.<br /><br />A 200-MHz Intel XScale PXA262 CPU powers the Voq, which comes with 48MB of flash memory for storage as well as 32MB of SDRAM. The Voq accepts standard SD cards, and they provide the best way to store and play media files. The 2.2-inch, 64K color display is identical to those of two other highly-rated devices based on the Microsoft Smartphone platform—the Motorola MPx200 and the Samsung SCH-i600. We tested a very late preproduction version of the Voq. The only difference between our unit and the final version, according to the manufacturer, will be in fit and finish, particularly color and gloss."<br /><br />This is the first review I've seen of the Voq, although it's still not a final production unit yet - but it's nice to see that they're getting closer.

SDIO? Bluetooth?

Hmmmm this does seem tempting but I am a bit concerned about the hinges on the phone, no mention of the above and base memory amount.

So when are you going to get your pre-release phone to review Jason? :lol:
