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.

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.

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

looks like 5610, but it's definitely not, since it's not supporting 3G network
