    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.

    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.

    For some reason the backflip uses yahoo everything instead of google, for example the search widget. It looks terrible.
