It's not yet official, so it will not be found there. But it is becoming a 
bit of a not so well-kept secret so this information should be pretty 
harmless. The first phone will be based on the NEC DB7000 (also avaible 
with WAP 1.2.1 browser for other operators). Main menu and general 
characteristics will be the same. 120x160 pixels, 256 colours, 99 grams, 
GPRS of course, final talk and standby time still fussy etc.

Images are not yet to be disclosed, but it looks the same as the DB 7000 
(see below):

A bit later than this one, there will be a few more. For the 1900 MHz band 
in the US, it is still very unclear what may be available and when.

I agree on many of these issues. But it is still a divide between the 
plastic book supports we have got used to in Europe and something you may 
actually start to use for mobile Internet.
