I have one (well, my 6th one) and (despite the high numbers, still) love it (them)! Don't you hate (really hate) when people (like me) use too many parenthesis?
Anyway, like smak alluded to, they aren't the sturdiest devices. I have had to go thru 6 (I think). But their customer service is so good, you get a new one shipped to your door in 2 days or so, with a pre-paid return box. So switch out your SIM card, drop the old one back in the mail and you're good to go. And do not drop the new one! By new, I mean refurbished. For my last one, I even insisted on a brand new one and got it. This may be too much of a hassle for some people, but the functionality of the device is so great, I take the good with the bad.
Plus, with the email client, I actually don't have to take my laptop on trips anymore. This is a phone, web surfer, IM device, and email checker all in one. Talk about your savign grace waiting in airports!
To emphasize the new model, however, it is suppose to address the current shortcomings. Namely, being produced by a larger electronics manufacturer for greater reliability (Samsung, I think, instead of Danger), new guts for better reception, a speakerphone, and a built in camera (the current camera is an attachment).
I have called this thing the phone of the gods for a year now, and despite the high number of swap outs, I still love this thing. I'll probably get the new model when it comes out if they offer any sort of trade in deal.
Just my $2.02 worth.
Common sense is a gift, not a given.
