I had one of these in my hands today at the local 3 store and its a very nice little phone.
I was also informed that it will cost £79.99 inc. £10 airtime, they will also be opening a pre-order book on friday 28th november, the phone will be available to those who pre-order on thursday 4th december with general release on the 5th.
This device is a welcome move for popularising the use of mobile devices for mobile internet communication purposes. The 3 Network in the UK is to be commended for actively encouraging this, including among its pre-pay customers. £5.00 a month for full web access. However, 3 customers might want to consider the Sony Ericsson K660i which doesn't cost much more than this device which offers a similar package plus the Walkman multimedia interface.

Anonymous, 15 Nov 2008My house is worth 500,000 iPhonesMine too, probably more.
Its just a figure of speech.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2008iPhone with Facebook App + Fring already does this.But at what cost? Remortgaging your house?
Besides, a touch screen sucks for typing. A normal keypad like this is better, never mind a QWERTY keypad.
It looks like the Vodafone 830 which is made by Huwei, the same specs too.
There is no sign of it on this site.
If the phone it make by nokia than the phone wouldnt be 100 GB pounds (115 euro).will be like 200GB at less.
3 did approach all the companies (ie LG Nokia etc) but no one was interested in the idea. That's why Hutchison who own 3 have created their own sub-company INQ to design these range of phones. I reckon its awesome - combines everything you need in a compact design, and will sell under $200 in Australia... bargain for what it does

why didn"t the 3 network as Nokia to make this, as the N85 as only just been released an would of got more people buying this if the Nokia name would have been on it,i bet Nokias not happy somebody releasing a replica of there N85
looks like 5610, but it's definitely not, since it's not supporting 3G network
