I love the front side camera. I wonder when the US will get to a point when we can face to face video conference with our mobile devices. With WiFi, 3G, and bluetooth, you're connected in every way. I'm very curious to see how the built-in business card recognition works. All in all it looks like a pretty slick powerful device. The down side? I'm not sure if we will ever see it here in North America. :x

All I need to know is who's importing this phone, and how much?

I would expect Expansys (mobile Planet) to have it on their site. I've held it, and I'm not really sold on the looks. Specs wise, it's pretty nice. Looks and size wise, it's not. ;)

Hmm...funny, but I really like it. I'm not a fan of the Dash's chrome piece...but seeing as my SDA just died. I might have to pick one up today anyway.
