    Looks pretty nice for what it is but I like having widgets and whatnot. I also don't use twitter, watch stocks, or do any social networking stuff so the bottom part would be almost empty LOL

    But for what it is, it looks excellent.

    Oh and Martin, I think I know why it looks like the BB screen to you. A quote from their website:

    I tried it out for a little bit but was not to impressed. I probably didnt give it a fair shake though. I am so use to flipping through multiple screens that having just this one page (although several filters and options) did not suit me well. Someone that uses their device for heavy appointments, emails and other BB type things may like it more than me.

    P.S. I am willing to reload it if there are certain questions....

    It's already up to beta 16 or so. There are ways to get it but I don't feel like discussing that. :)

    Its actually up to Release Candidate 1 (RC1). I've been using it for two weeks and its growing on me. Theyve been doing great with user suggestions and comments for features etc. One thing I don't like is google reader, twitter integration. I don't use them and at least one needs to be active. I'll leave it at that. I have heard that there will be two versions upon release in the market: A free ad supported version and a Pro paid version w/o ads and maybe some more features. Not clear on that last point. It can be run as an app or as a home screen replacement.

    Its a neat concept...

    I thought B16 let you disable reader/twitter or only one of them?

    It seems to dumb down the UI. Not doing it for me.
