I like this device too much . but it need more security as finger print .& It will be more beautiful when it be avaliable more fast.
This looks like the best of the phone ever made.HTC is on top of things. competing against them you will wish u never would have..................HTC UNBEATABLE
WOw!!!! What a phone but actually i think it would be so costly and i will purchase that if it is will avalable in India....
I personally believe the best way to use this device as a phone is with the LG Style I. Its a bluetooth 'handset' very small pen-like device. It has numbers to dial with, caller ID, volume controls, and I think voice dialing. Its pretty useless with any other phone, but ideal for use with the advantage. You can find them on ebay for like $10, $5 shipping. They have black and silver. The silvet one is branded "Verizon Wireless", but don't worry it works fine with the advantage, which is GSM network. Check them out, its a great alternative to wired or bluetooth headsets.
It has it's flaws, ie no vibrate & only hands free or earpiece talking (it's not a mobile phone in that respect) but as an in car PDA/GPS/Phone/planner/video player (to keep the kids happy) it's unbeatable - I've had mine for a few months & it's faultless, I'm getting an Iphone just becasue it's not the sort of thing you want to take out with you by itself.
To whoever responded to haze:
No microdrive on this one, 16 GB flash. I'm not sure about the vibrate though. I've read on xda-developers site that the x7501 indeed had a vibrate motor on the device, but was disabled, because of the microdrive obviously.
