    looks like a disaster if they were trying to get a pixi look…way to long and way to squared like the old gold nextel ugly as a mutt

    I feel like I have been the only one in the world looking for this form factor. I have two phones with Sprint and I have actually been holding out for a 755p like device (1. full qwerty, 2. no slider, 3. not dependent on a touchscreen qwerty). Then came the Pixi – (1. No capturing video (on sprint device, anyway) and I can’t view NBC videos, 2. keyboard just a little too small even for my medium-sized man hands). I like the Android platform as much as the WebOS. It bugged the hell out of me that there were over 100 Android phones and everyone was cranking out the same 2 form factors. To me this has left Blackberry so safe, because there have been no real alternatives for the business/consumer types. The perfect phone for me is really: 1. the width of the 755p or any BB Curve/Tour etc. 2. The thickness of the Pixi. 3. The Android or WebOS 4. And the creature comforts of the other phones gps, video capture, and full-featured web browser, and wifi. My bet, this will pull some BB fans. Stretch it to the BB width, even with a shorter screen, it will be a wrap.

    The screen quality needs to be better, but other than that, my days of BlackBerry use will be OVER and I will be back into an Android device. Tried a Nexus One, LOVED the phone, hated the virtual keyboard.

    Problem solved here. Android is the future.
