Looks pretty nice, tried to use it in The Carphone Warehouse, but as usual they have so many un-needed alarm systems attached to it they cut off complete use of the screen and the phone was about 4x as thick with all the security strapped to it, so as usual could barely try it.

This will not sell a lot. It's too big for a phone and too small for a tablet.

Played with one of these in the O2 store in Maidenhead and I gotta say it's very very nice. It's on the big side but if you're a business user as I am and don't want to carry around a tablet the size of the iPad (*spits*) in addition to your laptop then this sits perfectly in between. It's well built, smooth-running, has impressive specs and accessories, and a beautiful screen. With a Froyo update coming down the line it might just tempt me if the reviews are good.

Yes, for example be used as a phone or camera. More portable than iPad too.

Having spent the last couple of hours playing with one i have to say that it is a very user friendly piece of kit.

it needs the update from 1.6 asap but other than that i like it. would recommend using the handsfree provided to avoid looking like you've been shrunk or escaped from the lollypop guild

It wont be as successful as the Apple products or HTC for that matter but it will certaintly give them a little run for their money, dell could be the ones for the future!

The iPad is a full tablet, this has hit the mark between a smartphone and a tablet, you shouldnt be comparing this to an iPad in the first place. Whilst I will be buying an iPad we've just received this instore today (carphone warehouse) and i have to say i'm extremely impressed with it, once it receives 2.1 android it will be the bizz indeed.

Don't see what all the hype is about...

I'd much rather buy one of the upcoming dell android phones or a real tablet than this. This is too big for a pocket, yet it is not full tablet either.

And the styling is ugly(personal opinion).

Get either a milestone or galaxy s if you want a phone, or grab an ipad if you need a tablet.
