I picked this over Nokia 5800 at airport for 277 $, Nokia was 320 $. Was gonna get Nokia but decided to experiment and give droid a chance, been nokia fan forever now. And you know what, love this phone, it surely is google oriented which is fine with me use google services anyway. Big letdown is NO market app preinstalled on it, and you cannot install it short of flashing ur phone with firmware that has it... don't understand google politics on this one, not good for android.
Anyways for this price phone is awesome I believe it gives you better user experience than nokia 5800. My friend owns 5800 and I see envy in his eyes :) and it will only get better with 2.1 update. Gonna wait for official one, like the phone to much to mess with flashing....
Yes I would absolutelly recommend this phone to everybody, if you gonna get one do some research and get one with market app preinstalled. All new Spica's will come with 2.1 . Thanks and go ANDROID :)You made a believer out of me :)

Anonymous, 29 Mar 2010thanks teja j, any comments on the responsiveness of touchscreen?ya one the best touch screens i can say..no phone is as good as an iphone but this one gets close:)it has a capacitive touch screen..
really a good phone with wifi, gps, bluetooth and all those stuff, but i personally think that the phone itself cannot digest the OS itself,.... getting pretty a lot of errors during the changing screen thingy while txting
can the spica do smart search like the htc android? very useful when searching thru contacts.
