I've been following this one myself, it looks very interesting and groovy, but it's a close second, (for me anyway), to the groovy stuff Planet are doing.  
If I wasn't in love with the Cosmo I would probably be getting one.  If I tried to order both I would be smothered in my sleep by my loved one.  
Good luck to them anyway for giving us another interesting choice.

I prefer this form to the Gemini. I had two keyboarded phones in the past, an HTC Vision and then a Doubleshot. These were great in terms of practicality. Most of the time you used them like any other phone, but could instantly slide out the keyboard if, say, replying to an email.
You can't do that with a Gemini; you end up keeping the phone open all the time.

I hope @MikeHalsey doesn't mind me cross-posting his article.

Shame he couldn't be bothered to find out the ESC key wakes the phone before posting about this 'Major problem'.

Did anyone buy the fxtec pro? I've not seen much to say whether it lives up to its potential.

I don't know if anyone would still recognise the robot from the Wallace and Gromit movie, and I thought a new look forum needed a new avatar!
