The real question is how many people need a phone like this? Just because they dont sell one million units does not make the device a failure. This will stand up to much more than the iPhone does and it sells more units than any other single unit per production cycle. The fact of the matter is it is for a specific customer and they sell enough to make money and continue to make phones like this.

I'd like to see a good review of this phone. Saw on in the Verizon store and had a good first impression. .

Yeah my feelings as well. Seems like a solid phone. They dont seem to be putting any resources behind it for marketing yet though. So reviews may be slow to come.

I played with it for about an hour at a Verizon store, and it is a good, not great, device. The UI is actually kinda neat, and the Apps are really unique. But, I found there to be a little lag, and an impression of having to execute a lot of commands twice. By the way, CNET already has a review on it. They are complimentary, but warn to know it's limitations.
