Rather nice. Still no official spec list though, although rumour has it it has an 8.0Mp Exmor R camera. Don't quote me on that though.

Some live pics here.

nice looks and good hardware, if the price is right it will sell good! I can't figure out if it's the X8 successor or a upper market device, on the photos it looks rather expensive. It all comes down to the materials and build quality.

edit: Just read that it uses premium material such as aluminum, Big like! Then it's not the X8 successor...

didn't notice your comment sry. but as i said i would really like to see it's back and some high quality live pictures because it appears that it's ugly looking in live hands-on to me the mini pro and mini are far more elegant,a picture of the white version may make me change sides though, however, i would probably end getting this one because of the screen size.
