Neets: @nofam, what do you suppose the data use is with skype? I've only just started using gtalk instead of text to friends overseas but presume skype will be fairly high on data use. Any idea?


I can tell you exactly actually. . . .I was in Auckland on business for 2 nights recently, and Skyped SWMBO both nights - from memory it was around around 30 minutes both nights, and it used about 48Mb. . . it was just under 50Mb anyways. . . . . .


What was the quality like on a 3g data connection?

At her end her it was pretty good apparently - not so good at my end because she was Skyping on her laptop so it was kinda noisy/boomy. . . .but no lag to speak of.

Biggest issue is that it's not full-duplex.

Aha...

So I may indeed get my preview hands-on on Tuesday as my VF 'contact' hinted.

Cool.

Thanks for that zombait.

Buy legit. Functionally it will be the same phone that you receive, but if something does go wrong with an imported phone you have to wait for weeks or months to get it shipped off and fixed. Which is potentially 1/12 of the entire warranty period.
