Mah... not impressed at all; I understand that this is a pre-release still too much bezel and why the LG is so big?
I am looking to see what the HTC HD3 will be......

Features: Very good

Design: Circa 2007

I am happy that one the first WP7 devices will include a full slide out keyboard. The design however looks a bit dated. A lot of wasted space below the screen as well. They could make the screen a little longer or add a directional pad (I would love that actually but I think Microsoft is mandating fewer buttons on WP7 devices).

Hopefully HTC will release a slider about the same time (I know it'll look better). I'll only get the LG model if it's the ONLY device w/full QWERTY available upon launch.

I agree. I need a full qwerty and I like a D pad. Didn't realize how much until I got a Tilt 2 that no longer has one. I do like that it has a 3.5 jack though, I mean is that really too much to ask for?
I also agree that the screen should be larger, there is no value in a boarder. Get the screen as close to the edge as possible.

Agree 100%. I'm using a Diamond II and I REALLY miss the d pad.

This looks like a slight re-hash of the LG eXpo...I'd guess they just changed the buttons.
