Well I tested one out at the Telus store the other day, and it was definitely a different experience compared to iPhone and BlackBerrys. I have previously used an iPhone for two years and recently switched to a Blackberry Curve 8900 and now a Storm 2. I have to say the Milestones browser is 10x better than the BBs, but with that said it is still not in the same league as the iPhones. The next issue I had was the keyboard. The touchscreen keyboard was very small, I made all types of errors and the auto correct feature was no help, so I was disappointed there but hoped this is where the physical keyboard would make things even. I was wrong, as the physical keyboard is very tough to use with your thumbs. There is very little space between the keyboard and the phone, which means if you have big hands and thumbs like myself, the top row of the keyboard is very difficult to access. Also the keys do not stand out at all, the surface is very smooth and difficult to know when you are moving one key to another without watching very carefully what you are pressing.
However i did enjoy the speed of the phone, it seemed fairly fast with everything I asked it to do. If I were ever to switch from a BB again, this just does not have anything that would sway me from going back to an iPhone.

I'm very interested by this phone. The other day I tried and I was very impressed... yes it is very fast. I have some questions about this phone.
Flash to surf the web are there?
Can I install applications like msn messenger?
What are the essential applications?

One thing i noticed about this phone was that, it was heavy but it was a good feels sturdy and solid kind of heavy, my tour was a lightweight practically lol. The browser also pzoooowns the BB browser anyday of the week. Didnt type or anything on the physical keyboard but the touchscreen was sensitive and the zoom feature(right advertising term?) was cool
