Well yes and no. It's more an iPod Touch, as so far, a phone variety hasn't been announced. It has an impressive screen, which still remains to be great or indifferent until you get it in your hands. I expect it to be good, but to retail around 600, so probably a bit dear for a device you won't always have on you.

A yank asked me once why we call it Autumn and not Fall. I replied, because we can pronounce words with more than one syllable. He just looked at me blankly. ;-)

One of the first things said was it needed to be better at doing things than an iphone and a laptop - Ive not seen a lot that convinces me it does that so far.
