I’ve mentally been writing this one off for a while, since I figured it would be quite large (like the current generation of slide-out keyboard Pocket PCs, e.g. the Siemens SX66). But the latest batch of shots to come out of Engadget show otherwise:
That’s a Motorola V710 next to it, your standard flip phone. Yikes, that Samsung suddenly got a lot more appealing.
And you can’t beat the feature set – EVDO (high speed wireless! woo hoo!), Bluetooth, WiFi, etc. This could be a seriously killer device when it comes out (supposed to happen in the next couple of months from Verizon).
If EVDO becomes available in the Portland area, this could very well by my next phone. Can’t wait for the release and real world reviews. Check out the Engadget article for some more candid photos, including a shot of the phone in someone’s hand. Unless they’re a giant, it reinforces the diminutive size of this device.
