Detailed review
I used the phone for 6 months, even after having the first iPhone. I loved the battery life, speed, apps, keyboard, etc... Plus it was the only AT&T phone that would work in Japan. I was in Japan for 3 weeks during the San Diego wildfires of 2007 ( I used to live there). If it was not for this phone and its great "True World" GSM coverage I would have been unable to talk with my wife as she was evacuated from out home. That was a LONG week and that phone was my connection to the world!! I had a $3000 bill when I returned but thank god my company paid for it.

I still like the Palm designs (well most of them) and really hope the Pre can recapture the cool factor they used to have. I love my iPhone, well not the iPhone as much as the Apps. I can't wait to see WebOS on a AT&T.
