The Nibiru doesn't even look appealing. There's a bunch of unecessary hardware designs...why have those nasty humps for screen protection when they do have simple film that would probably protect the screen better. It is still possible to create a kickass design, while still keeping the simple form factor, w/o crazy sharp angles and that weird touch pad; look at LG....

the nibiru is a great idea. but the screen protector makes the thing un-pocketable and maybe uncomfortable to handle

Two things bother me about it, why would you need a second touch pad when the screen is already touch? What exactly is the point of having the camera slide up when there is nothing inhibiting it in its slid down position? The side mp3 player screen screams unnessecary.
