    wow what a beautiful thing!
    Great screen, very large and crisp, feels very sold in your hand. Slide function is very cool and doesn't feel cheap.

    keyboard is very small, but usable for most (unless you have fat fingers). I wish I had the cash to pick one up. We just got three in at work.

    Haven't used it to place a call so I'm not sure of RF yet, but i'll check it out monday. I'm a little leary as I know how bad most seimens phones are on RF.

    If you can do me a favor. Open up the back and tell me if it says HTC or I-Mate on the serial sticker and where its made. Do the keys light up orange or blue?

    Ah, Its made by HTC... I think this is one of the first Siemens products that isn't made by Siemens themselves. Do the keys light up blue on the keyboard/pad?

    It is still an excellent product! :)

    Yep. it lights up a very pretty blue color. Yeah this phone has so much rebranding going on haha, you got the O2 XDAII, the PDA2k?? or whatever too lol. I wish i had that one cause the O2 is all black.

    Regardless, I love this phone a lot. Got some issues getting the gprs to be stable, but that could just be my house and what not.

    Don't forget BlueAngel as another name but that's more of the codename/project name they used. PDA2k is the OEM branded one. XDAII is of course the provider brand and yes the XDAIIs is the black one.

    Check out my friend's mega review: http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=519561 yes, 56k die. :)

    RF is decent, but not as good as my i-mate JAM

    I agree RF on the Jam is pretty good.

    Hofo has some pretty socialist ways with their mods. I just like to read info and give info when I get the chance. Other than that, I don't do much on there. I know I have plenty to say though but oh well...on with life :)
