    Wow, the specs are great. I'm just no keen on how the phone looks from the front though... is that suppose to be a scrollwheel?

    I wonder if a carrier will pick it up - unlocked phones sure are expensive.

    When I see things like built-in FM tuner with RDS support I can't help but think of Zune.  I'd love to see Microsoft offer Zune to mobile phones via a Zune branded 16GB microSD card that includes Zune software.

    UPDATE:  I checked out their website and indeed the scrollwheel like control you see is not a physical control but rather a control rendered in a secondary display.  This is an interesting twist...especially if their tactile feedback is good.  One could ask why not do the same thing with one large touch screen display.  My guess, is power consumption and cost of parts.
