I usually don't play with phones that are not available in the US. Lats week a co-worker shwed me his i620v (in White) and I was very impressed. The screen is bright, the keyboard felt good , but above all, the phone looks fantastic in person. Really beautiful. And small. But still fully functional.
Samsung is bringing some of the best smat phone designs to the market. The market is getting more interesting.I also played with a Palm 500v, which also has a really nice size and beautiful finish - really, the photos you see on the internet don't do it justice: you have to hold it in your hand to appreciate it. Sadly, the 500v won't be coming to the US as it does not support our frequencies.
