Just had the chance to test this baby a few minutes. Unlike most people I would purchase it even without GSM phone functionality. Great device to use at home to have a quick look into the web while watching a quiz, show your mother the latest photos, enjoy a video and so on. And for phone functionality you still have VoIP.
Out of the house you can pair it with someone who has WiFi either as a hotspot or a GSM-phone with flatrate and WiFi. So you have many possibilities to be online without GSM.
- EXCELLENT image quality of the display
- all functionality you want to have relaxing at home or staying with friends
- browser did not adjust to wide format in my tests
- browser had difficulties with flash - no way to set position in video. I used this for tests: http://meteo.search.ch/prognosis
- Android 2.2 only; should be 3.x. I don't think it will be possible to update (Android demands some technical features for devices to operate under 3.x).
- display is 800x480 (10:6). How long will it take them to understand, that a display *must be 4:3? Use a 16:9 window for videos, use rest of display for the userinterface. Those overlays are stupid! Other reasons against 16:9 are photos taken in 90° degree mode, too short display for browser in wide mode...
