Well, Helio sent us our Kickflip in the mail today, and we can't really stop
playing with it. The EV-DO is the usual walled garden media business; H.O.T. isn't bad, but won't let you add
feeds; generally the apps work well and are easy on the eyes, even if they aren't always incredibly flexible. We'll go
more into the software later (anything you want to know?) though, it's the hardware where the Kickflip really shines.
We freaking can't stop flipping the thing open. It's like tactile crack, and we have to put it away under some papers
to free our hands and get any work done, instead of engaging in the idle addictive sensation of nudging the screen and
flipping it open, then closing it again with that little click. Not that it'll do it justice, but if you want to peep a
video of the Kickflip's opening mechanism in action, check out the link below. Otherwise click on for a bunch of hands
on pics of the device.
