WOW!! It is almost the same promise they did for P990i!!... sorry but I will not be caught on that net again. Better wait for the touchscreen HTC, or Nokia's UIQ.

Windows mobile has got a dedicated reset/reboot button. Makes one think doesn't it? And all that manufactured by SE makes one thing 2X - looking back at P990i. Huh,how much I wished it was less hype and more meat on the bone.And why announce it now if it will be made widely available at christmas (not selected shops)
