God, I love this device. The design is gorgeous- think bananaphone, in a good way. Much like a banana, it fits very well in the hand. The screen is just right in size for me and I am extremely impressed by its black levels and the intensity of the colors. Using Read it Later and Netflix on this thing is simply wonderful. There are some downsides. The wifi antenna seems quite weak and reception in general isn't great. Battery life is pretty par for the Android course, which means BAD, but this may be related to the signal issues that I have in my neighborhood. Ice Cream Sandwich is a breath of fresh air. Operating this device is fluid and seamless. Switching between apps using the WebOS-like cards is really satisfying, and the UI in general just feels much more accessible while retaining the geeky Android style of old. If you're due for an upgrade like I was, don't hesitate to get this device. You will be content.
