I am not sure this "It's a baby - protect it" feeling bodes well for
its future, if wide-spread - it looks a bit too toy-like, and easy to
lose. It is also a bit thick - something a little wider but a lot
flatter would be more to my taste.
The weird curved handle does not seem to increase the depth, and is
actually welcome as I suspect this phone will be used tied around
I did not play with a working version as I have not had time. What are
other people's impressions?
