I´ve now had the phone for 6 hours and I will try to tell you a bit about it.
Its a big leap forward in terms of software and hardware compared to the old 2700. The phone feels very solid and have great buttons.
- Far superior screen , higher resolution and scratch resistant glass.
- Keyboard have an excellent feel and the side buttons is have better tactile feel
- Flashlight is wider in angle and the same amount of light
- Better battery
- Camera is actually semi-useful (not expected that), although the movie feature is probably nothing that will win you and Oscar.
-The browser thats now based on WebKit
- E-mail client works with gmail (2100 was bugged in that way)
- Facebook app
- Twitter app
- Google maps that works really good
All in all a great upgrade and with the all the Internet software loaded into the phone, I honestly feel that I have no need for a "smartphone".

It is thoughtless !
definitely the phone that i've been waiting for. a tough phone. it will be better if it also smart phone. i hope it will be launch in indonesia.
Ok so it is meant to be a tough phone, ideal for the 'active' types, however a 2" screen does seem a bit small for having GPS, and if it is designed for active types, why install google maps, surely people are going to be possibly out of a signal area using this phone on hikes etc, so onboard/ offline maps would have made more sense.
