Nice unboxing review!

I am seriously thinking about getting this phone.. I have a Fuze now and have held out for something better than the Tilt2..

One question: Does it have a digital compass? I see some reviews that say it does and some that say it doesn't..

Also: please give us a picture and video quality example! I read that the video capture is 640x480, I was hoping for 720p..

Until Jason finishes his full review, you can check out the PhoneArena.com review (http://bit.ly/8211gh); it has some sample photos.

That review is somewhat light on detail about the video recording capabilities; however, a friendly person on another forum emailed me a sample video taken at maximum resolution, and it's 640x480 at 20 fps: not completely fluid, but looks pretty nice.
