    Expensive, especially considering (in the US at least) it ties you into a 2 year contract, but it looks very, very good. They'll sell by the truckload.

    Especially liked the Visual Voicemail - amazing no one else (that I'm aware of) does this.

        You can do things by using 'gestures' rather than having to click buttons. For example to scroll from picture to picture you drag your finger across the screen, to the left for the previous image, to the right for the next.

        Or, if you want to make a picture bigger, you put two fingers on the display and move them apart (as if you're stretching the image). To shrink it, you 'squeeze' the image.

                  MP3 Phones are probably the future. The storage on those will increase to a capacity where people won't even want to use basic mp3 players anymore.

                    Half inch taller than Xda MiniS &amp; 1/4 inch thinner. 20 grams heavier. No mention of GPS, just Google Maps.

                      I'm sceptical the first version will be good. I'm sure later versions will be excellent but I can imagine it having a lot of bugs, and stuff like battery life problems.

                        Personally I'm going to stick with a smaller form factor phone and get a widescreen video ipod when it comes out as it inevitably will.

                            I'm more concerned as to how it will fare out being used as a phone. iPods scratch if you so much as look at them when hungover, and when using my iPod, I tend to be careful, and always have it secured in a case. My phone however has been dropped more times than I can remember, and generally puts up with a lot of abuse. There's no way I would tuck my iPod under my ear while emailing / cooking / carrying a load of bags etc, yet that is standard use for a phone.

                              I reckon this IS their widescreen video iPod. Can't see them releasing a non-phone version, wouldn't imagine there would be enough of a difference in price between the two devices to justify it.

                              Really nice device, well thought out, brilliant design and engineering, but does anybody else have a tiny little nagging voice inside their head wondering what happened to the days when people would have conversations with friends, maybe read a good book, learn something new or take up hobbies, instead of making sure they have enough "content" on hand at all times to excuse them from having to make social contact or - heavens forbid - think? I think the great irony of devices such as this is that their existence will eventually rid the world of the last remnants of the imagination which was required to conceive of such devices in the first place!
