It has a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor (like the Toshiba TG01), so is lightening quick around the menus. At the moment it’s only running Android 1.6, but the skinning job gives it an impressive sheen.

The ‘contacts’ homescreen brings together email and texts, though it falls short of pulling together all your friends’ Twitter and FaceBook content like MotoBlur or Vodafone 360.
