Look at that antenna, too! Unfortunately, it’s as useless as those found on PALM’s devices. You’re limited to a range of about 4 ft., but the clarity you’ll get is absolutely remarkable – almost as if the person is standing right beside you.

    I can’t wait to seet that new set of icons from rim. Very crisp.

    My bet is that once Boy Genius confirms the functionality, you’ll get all the PTT/walkie-talkie functionality w/o purchasing a separate data plan. Just won’t have that nationwide coverage that comes with iDEN.

    The peel-off screen…this phone isn’t real. Anyone else feel the same? I’m not sure what the whole deal is behind the peel-off screen.

    Unless I’m missing something, but it looks to me, very clearly so, that this is just a prototype, like what they show in the stores.
