Yes, ugly will be the reaction to the suits made by the fruit co. That's Ok. It's an android and thereby has options the ifone won't have .
I waited for these Phablets to appear since there was one a few years ago and there was a cry to have them and with Android, well the manufacturers CAN. Fruit fones will lag again for a bit.
I am unhappy with the whole NFC and want to open mine up and cut the connection. NFC allows remote access on yet-another channel and there are too many open channels with Bluetooth, WAN/4G, WiFi, (seems I missed one). It works as described. But, that is the problem.
Not as fast as my Nexus 7. But well so what, it is a phone. It is available and supports the only network that works everywhere I go in USA (verizon), so that is a big plus. Almost No dead spots like (A)nother (T)ertible (T)elephone Company.
It is larger than my Droid Razr and that is good. I move my SIM card between the two and I have the best of them both.
So, I am quite happy. I'd be happier if it came pre-rooted and with fewer useless apps like Facebook, gmail, and others. But, that's OK - I root it and remove the cruft apps hide those that need to be there because the lack of effective modular SW designs and disable a few.

Anonymous, 22 Sep 2012The Ugliest Phone i Have Ever Seengo and see galaxy s3 and note then ...
except s3 remaining phones optimus G / vu2 / l9 / iphone 5 / one-x are ugly for samsung fan boys . LG rocks ... best display and powerful
Optimus Vu 2 is Best phablet available in market for browsing / notes /typing etc we need a wider screen. if you dont like aspect ratio then buy the best phone with best display and best chipset for videos and other entertainment --- optimus G
I'm looking forward to it coming to Australia, the size is good, they might be on to something here. I can't stand the shape of current devices, always long shaped and limiting what you can. Cant wait.
