So dissapointed as i have been waiting for the this for months. :-(

I find it is easy to use, but then I am not a superfast texter.
Hope this helps.
Can owners please tell us whats it like to text on the phone? Is it easy or frustrating like a few of the other touchscreen phones?

Does the Arena have an on screen QWERTY like the Viewty? Cannot see any examples of this in the demo videos.

If that so, then can we customize the nokia or SE or Iphone interface to LG's S-CLASS interface? If not then we are sticking to LG.
Could you please send Pictures taken with LG Arena in Day, night and interiors.
Thank you very much!!

you cannot install any apps on this device untill LG opens a app store. if you want to use it as just a phone then wait for the Viewty II mid year all good phones are coming out Mid year. peace.
I guess there should be some kind of PC suite on a CD with the phone. Can you save or load your SMS with it ?
Can anyone comfirm if this phone has privacy passwords?
so that anyone cant read messages etc?
In actual fact, the LG GD900 which has the worlds first glass transparent keypad is much better than the Arena. A video on the Lg GD900 showed that the screen was a capacitive touchscreen and has multi-touch (I know the LG Arena has it too). The GD900 has a8 megapixel camera, touch-sensitive keypad and of course the same S-Class UI. Apart from the 3.5mm headjack, I think the GD900 is better than the Arena and MUCH better than the Iphone 3g.If you are worrying about the keypad that it might break, this sentence will clear your worries(maybe): LG have confirmed that the glass keypad will be a tempered hard glass. Is that enough? The GD900 will also follow the 8 meagpixel lineup.(You know what that means,right?)
the music player; i've added 3GB album's .
# just 1 out of 10 cover-arts are recognized. haven't found out yet what exactly makes it visible (except the id-tag in the song)
# the seek funktion is a mess, compared to sonys symbian g900 and the walkman w880. some albums are divided into 2 or 3. scroling thru 30 albums's is a pain. when your looking into an album to see what's on and than go back out, then you're back at the beginning of the list and can start scrolling again.
# on the favorite side of the cube, i can only add songs, not albums.
# the player there is a complete different, to the standard player. i can't click from a playing favorite song to the complete album. even can't use any multitasking with this "second" player
