nice video... man, that phone is laggy
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.
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.
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
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....
honestly Motoblur i feel is for like little kids.. It dhould be a kids phone.. like middle school nd high school kids.. the phone itslef.. resembles the iphone a bit more than i'd like it too.. i do enjoy the ANDROID boot screen though... nice font there..
