The miniUSB port is the sole port on the handset, handling both charging and connectivity - this is great for business users, allowing them to charge the handset with, for example, a laptop computer (which I did on several occasions). The cover for this port is frustratingly hard to get out of the way when you are trying to plug the handset in though; the small rubber link between cover and handset needs to be about twice its current length to be usable."</i><br /><br /> <img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/Temporale-20061230-MobileBurn-SPLreview.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />This is one of the nicest looking Smartphones on the market today. i-mate did a great job with its looks, but did they manage to make the insides as good as the outside? MobileBurn takes a look at it, and they like what they see. What are your thoughts? Has anyone here played with the SPL? It's on my list of devices to <i>get my hands on.</i> :)

I like it. I have always liked that RAZR like keypad. I like it more that it isn't on a RAZR. :lol:
