Awesome - I just had a look at the website, it is great to see - hopefully they'll get more models in the future.

Disappointed honestly. Much better and nicer looking models out there that work on AT&T and Telstra in Australia. We have couple of test units of these LG Optimus 7Q units at work. Back gets hot because battery cover is made out of metal and I hate the physical QWERTY keyboard on any smartphone anyways but that's a personal preference.

In terms of the battery life, what is the standby like? also, can you expand it beyond the 16GB? I read the website and it seems you can't - I really do need around 32GB minimum to replace my existing iPod :-/
