I have been a techster for years but finally moved to a smart phone when I though they were finally smart enough. After 3 weeks I am comfortable with this huge thing (compared to a V3m), but I am still finding out what it can do that I had not expected. I use GPS all the time for different things, well with a few free apps this can probably replace two of them (the laptop and SA2010 still have a screen size and planning advantage). Like so many others here, I find the included ads and bloatware annoying and will probably be looking to root this thing in another week. This thing does do more tricks than a carnival pony..
