Hopefully when it comes out it will come out at a reasonable price, hopefully sub $400.
This perform fine for everyday tasks and is more than enough for the average person which is good to see.
I really want to see some of the low end (sub $200) Android phones that the telcos advertise that actually can not even perform simple tasks (web browsing) properly. Candy bar phones are way faster than some of those cheap Android phones. Cough cough, Galaxy Ace, LG P500 Cough Cough (not isolating those, just quite popular ones in NZ).

Well I'll probably have one of the first ones in the country, but it'll be a present for my fiance so we won't know how it is until after Christmas. I probably shouldn't post about it online, but to be honest she's never going to read a forum called geekzone so I think I'm pretty safe ;)

It could be a good phone for many people. If they make a later version with a card slot many people with high end phones could choose it too.

Did you end up ordering one? Got some relatives visitng the UK, might try and get them to picl up the 16GB version but seems to be not much stock around, or they haven't launched the 16gb version.

Yes, ordered one, shipping from Amazon mid december. May not make it for Christmas unfortunately. If anyone knows if you can get unlocked ones from a store let me know, I'll have family over there pick one up from me. I know you can get them on contract but that's not very helpful.

Ah, the 8GB is available now, 16GB early December. Given it doesn't take an SD card, and that I have about 14GB used on my SD between the phone and SD card, I think I'll hold out for the 16GB version in December. My partner has been told one of her presents may not arrive until Jan, but fingers crossed amazon's shipping estimate is conservative.

Chargers are cheap, and most people have a number of them already. Mobicity has them for pre-order.

It looks like you can order a global GSM version for US$199/NZ$240, shippping on 2nd December, compared with GBP169/$322 from Amazon UK shipping 12 December. Seems like a no-brainer to cancel the UK order and get it from the US, probably via Youshop.

I should get the Global GSM version right? Specs here. Not sure what network It'll be used on, either Vodafone or Telecom.

Global GSM Model: GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)
US GSM Model: GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)
CDMA Model: CDMA/EVDO Rev A (850, 1900 MHz)

The Global GSM Model would be the best if your not sure which you'll use it on. That's pretty good price, might look at getting one myself.

I didn't realise there was different models, what is the one being sold in the UK? Amazon uk tell me it will be 146 GBP including postage to NZ. They take off the VAT, actually ends up cheaper than the 159 GBP phones4u are asking in the UK. I can't see the phone up on US amazon yet.
