I needed one pretty quickly otherwise would have purchased from Parallel Imported or Expansys. It's real good is pretty swift in the menu's and the screen is pretty good for the price range.

I did find it pretty hard to grip though. It is a bit too slippery. If you've had any experience with the Windows Phone platform, I don't think you'd be disappointed.

Thanks for the tip! I've been looking to get one, so the timing was perfect.

Just been and bought one from the Warehouse Downtown, Auckland. Looked like they had 6-12 in the case, and the guy said they only have black ones (which is what I was after).

Awesome deal, too bad my friend who's looking for a phone is away for a while.

If in Auckland, Balmoral warehouse has 1 yellow one left (I just got the other ;-) ) and I think the chap I talked to there said there were a couple of other stores with a few left. Not sure why yellow is the unpopular colour - black just seems boring ;-)
