Good to hear! What colour did you get, and does it have any "scuffgate" issues?

I had a very quick look at the in-store black model at Voadfone in the weekend and it had a couple of little nicks in the bezel, although that could well have been in-shop damage.

So far so good, I have already put a screen protector on it. the bezel is 100% and I would have to say the cabinet body looks very nice. One thing that blew me away was how light it is!!

Had a play with a black one instore, and they are definitely well built.  heaps on fingerprints on them from all the people playing around on them.  Lightness is good IMO.

IOS is starting to look dated on it now.  Maps found my home though, and routed ok to it.

Will wait for the first outright batch to come through and then buy a 16gb black.

I had a play with one too, and the screen just feels really weird with the aspect ratio the way it is. The proprtions of the phone just feel a bit strange. It feels like it needs to be wider, and actually I think the portrait keyboard would be a better more usable size if it was wider. That would obviously create a wider phone, but increasing it;s length has increased it's size anyway. IOS maybe a bit outdated, it lacks widgets, but apple have added widgets on the notification slidedown for weather and stocks. But I don't think that works all that well, and it would be good if you could add your own widgets to it.
