QWERTY bar form factor.
ultra similar specs to my current TyTN II except of course for the glaring form factor difference [which also lends to the dimensions] and battery [which would lend to weight and uptime]. Very very tempting... much more tempting than the Samsung SGH-i780 with it's not so standard 320x320 resolution. I'd pick low-res over application compatibility any time... still I am hesitant to change devices merely for form factor's sake only [honestly though that hasn't stopped me before], now if this were 480x640 vga I'd be queuing up to buy one [higher res + form factor 2 reasons would be enough I suppose].
it's posted as coming soon on the NA hp website but hopefully we get it in Asia 1st :D
So QWERTY bars aren't going away yet hooray!!!
