I have been using this phone for more than 6 months now. I got unlocked one from Amazon for less than 300$, It's a bargain for what this phone has to offer. The fact that i get the updates immediately without carrier meddling with it is worth the money spent to get unlocked one.
I love the keyboard, I was never a fan of the touch screen keyboards and horizontal slide out keyboards. Changing the orientation of the phone just to type seems to be a compromise. This phone is a blessing for me. Amazing form factor, I am surprised there are very few phone with this form factor.
I owned Samsung captivate and Samsung focus before switching to this, both with S-AMOLED screen, I can say that the display of this device is on par or better than those devices.
The camera of this phone is less than average. Software is the best. The email client kicks serious butt. I use this phone for lot of emailing, Super awesome email client with the super awesome keyboard makes for a killer combo.
Over all i am pretty impressed with this phone.
