Else promises to change the rules of the game, but can it really?
Actually, hardware is not the most intersting aspect of the First Else. We find the idea of an interface that adapts depending on the way you use it, as opposed to software that you just have to get used to, like it or lump it, quite fascinating and the name of the operating system, Intuition, reflects the notion. It´s based on the sPlay interface that is best desribed as a wheel that can be easily controlled with your right thumb and allows easy access to important and overused functions. Despite the fact that the guys with Else claim this practically eliminates the need of main menu, their operating system comes with one. Take a look at the video presentation that was shown at the event in London..
All told, Intuition looks quite nice indeed and Else promises something quite different from anything we have seen this far. Still, we´re old hands at cell phones and can´t say it´s the first time we´ve seen devices being advertised as the next iPhone killer and featuring operating systems qualified as unique sink into oblivion quite fast, so let´s not jump the gun here. Still, we do hope the First Else proves to be revolutioanry, because we like its futuristic interface quite a lot, not to mention today´s cell phone market could use some fresh air to stir things a bit.

I want to see what this is like, if it is game changing I will be excited for competition to drive even better innovation.

I've been a PPC junkie since day 1. This is without a doubt the biggest leap in UI i ever seen!
