    My GF and I played with it at CES in Jan. for a while and it definitely wasn't this laggy. Yes, it was 1.6 and yes, it was running Motoblur. The phone seemed pretty solid, but I'm not a big fan of this new form factor.

    It does seem laggy too, does anyone know what kind of processor this has? I couldn't find it on the moto web site.
    It has a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7200A with 256MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM, according to PDAdb. Looking at the spec sheet, it is approximately as powerful as the processor in the Droid Eris (MSM7600, which I believe is a CDMA variant of the 7200A - the CPU and GPU cores seem the same)

    In my opinion, it is a bit underpowered for a new device, but this seems to be a lower-end device, so it's not out of the ordinary. Unfortunately, looking at the video, it seems to perform about as well as my Motorola Droid underclocked to 250MHz (actually, the app drawer lag was about like my Droid at 125MHz).

    I also find the completely exposed keyboard to be a horrible idea, the keys are not protected at all. I have a strange feeling these phones won't last long in people's pockets.

    Go figure... a demo at a show like CES had been optimized to impress people, this surprises you why?? The window (and other reviews that are coming out) are 'otb'/as is. Even our Droids are not great otb, especially compared to one running a custom (i.e. optimized) ROM. Don't think for a second the OEMs don't do the same for press events ect.
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    Other than that what are your initial impressions on the device. Weight, feel etc etc

    Thanks Tigger
    Te other impressions where just fine. Weight is OPTIMAL! The fold-mechanism is stable like the droid's slider, the Keyboard is a blast when compared to the droid's.

    If this phone would just be as fast as the droid, and running 2.1 instead of 1.6,
    it would be a NEW KILLER.....would be....

    Didn't let it actually get fully booted before you started playing with it... even my DROID takes up to 1 minute after loading to fully stabilize.

    Agreed. Gotta let all the background tasks finish loading up.
