Nice specs, just too bad it doesn't have a built-in camera. I own a XDA (great device!), but my next PPCPE definitely will have a megapixel camera and support MMS. Definitely.

Nice specs and I like the idea of the keypad, reminds me a little bit of the SonyEricsson P800 keypad, which is a great idea to make the phone interface more usable!

Its quite good except the price seems too high, and, it seems not available outside inland China and only in Simplifed Chinese !!!
Frankly loving it very much but just wait and see if the distributor will carry in into HK.

I managed to get a unit with English OS and had it for the last 6 weeks.
I love this phone as it replaces my old Palm and Nokia 8250.
The reception is very good and the best thing about it is that I can send SMS faster than my old phone. I can download a lot of ringtones from the Internet for free. The screen is fantastic and comparable to the IPAQ 1910. The processor is the newest Xscale PXA255.

But, it can not support external USB device and SD device. Meanwhile, it can not be updated to PPC2003 !
