Umm. Before you all get really excited, you guys are aware that AT&T has kind of backed off on this, aren't you? This story is unfortunately a little behind the curve since AT&T did the...

No matter what they say, Skyfire is NOT a browser - it is a browsing service front-ended by a screen-scraping software.

And Skyfire isn't a browser - it's more like a screen-scraper. It's closer to a Citrix client than a true browser. You'll still need a browser to view local / off-line content.

It's not just a matter of AT&T/TMo vs. Verizon/Sprint. It's not just GSM service vs. CDMA.

Your problem doesn't sound like a coverage problem, rather it sounds more lik a building penetration...

It doesn't quite kick the iPhone's or any other phone's anything - yet. We still need the full "official" specs before you really know anything.

Although it's interesting and has some nice features, I have to agree with some of the other posters. This version is not ready for prime time.

It's very unstable and when I click on things,...

The bottom line, though, is that they have taken a step backward. They should have chose, going forward, to support, at minimum, ALL...

You really need to point out that this device is ONLY tri-band. Once again, the 850MHz band is missing so no go for a lot of potential U.S. users unless they modify it and bring it over officially....

Their screens show it as only having 128MB RAM and I thought specs listed it as having 192MB RAM. Isn't this also going to affect the benchmark to some extent?

Actually, you've got one small error in your report. You say that it has 128MB RAM, but the ad actually only says it has 128MB of memory - not exactly the same thing. It could well be that the...

The two big differences I see are the x800 has 3G (they call it 3.5G) where the x650 does not, and the x800 has GPS which the 650 does not.

I suspect there are other differences, but those two...

Specs list it as having only 64MB RAM, but a 256MB flash memory (storage) with about 165MB free.
