Since my post on the Universal I've had lots of questions through as comments and email - I thought I'd share the questions and answers with everyone.
Q1. Who is going to launch the device?
So far Vodafone, T-Mobile and Orange have announced the device. The Orange M5000 was announced yesterday and details are at their website - http://shop.orange.co.uk/shop/show/handset/orange_spv_m5000/detail
Q2. What is it's actual size?
Size - 127.7mm x 25mm x 81mm
talk time 5.0 hours
standby 10.0 days
Q3. Can you use the device without a 3G SIM?
You can but obviously it's great with 3G :)
Q4. What about video calling?
There are two cameras on the device - one on the screen (VGA) and one on the back of the device (1.3mega pixel) You can use the screen based camera for video calling.
Q5. How does it handle dialling with the clamshell closed?
You will have to use a voice dialling utility - you can either use Voice Command (http://www.handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?siteId=1&jid=4235C8D932F78551FEDDX8317X4138DB&platformId=2&N=96806&productId=90635&R=90635) or some of the Universal devices from operators have a 3rd party solution integrated in ROM.
Q6. When will my mobile operator have it? (insert Cingular, AT&T, Vodafone, Orange etc...)
Don't know - ask your operator?
Q7. How do you answer calls with the clamshell shut?
You can use the buttons on the side to take and cancel calls without opening the screen.
Q8. Where can I get one...
Be patient ... it'll be out soon!!
Q9. How can I get your job :)
Unfortunately my position is not vacant :)
