seriously, Marcel. you can not tell the difference between 65k and 252k so what's the problem? people annoy the hell out of me when they say things like "only 2mp camera? no way!!" who cares? very few people actually use their phone cams and those that do and need the best quallity they can, usually go for a cam/phone hybrid... but seriously?? you're moaning about a 65k screen?? you're probably the type of guy that buys a phone and says to all your friends "hey everyone, my phone does this, this, this... etc" then never use them.

I really like the Touch Slide (Dual) but they lack a qwerty keyboard and a flash for the cam make it just shy of a perfect buy for me. i'm very interested in the HTC kaiser (TyTn II) but Orange seem to be taking their time releasing it. after being hugely disappointed with Nokia and SE's current flagship smartphones, i'm very much looking to purchase a HTC windows mobile as my next phone. the LG viewty (KU990) is probably the only thing that would tempt me away, but it's not a smartphone nore does it have a qwerty keyboard.
