A few observations:
- The handset itself won’t win any prizes on the style-front. It’s a bog standard candy-bar design, with a slightly cheap looking trim. This isn’t a phone for the tech-savvy early adopter crowd to rival the iPhone, but is squarely aimed at younger, more general, price conscious consumers.
- Despite offering first-of-its-kind native Skype functionality, the phone doesn’t feature WiFi. Duh!
- Sending Skype-to-Skype IMs maybe free, but there is, sadly, no QWERTY keyboard.
- Presence — the ability to see who is “online” and ready to receive a call — is a great feature on a cell phone.
