Just So You Know

Let me start this by saying if at any time you read a message that compels you to a response, by all means... feel free to continue the learning. You DO NOT have to leave your real name or any name for that matter. When you click "post a comment" or however it reads, you have 3 options. Once on the actual comments page, you'll see prior replies as well. Then there's the 'leave a comment' field. Under that are CAPTCHA and 'choose an identity' (name) options. CAPTCHA is designed to slam SPAM as well as let me know a human is posting vs. a computer generated response. Again, I do not consume beef nor pork so SPAM is not welcomed. Even a photograph of it bothers me. Ok, not really but you get my point and hence you will see the moderation message when you've finalized your post. The identity/name options are as follows:

1) Log-in using (drop down menu for those registered with those services)

2) Nickname and URL - allows you to choose any name and/or link your site to it

3) Anonymous (you can use it but I still have the right to decide if it gets published publicly or not - GOOD FOR ME - YAY!!)

So there ya go. Send me $49.99 if you use these instructions in your own BlogSpot. Cash, cashier's check, money order and Western Union accepted 24/7. :D

Menu/sub-menus are WONDERFUL

Ease of use is great


MicroSD card is easy to retrieve (better than the Behold)

Control buttons on main face are comfortable and flush

On board system tutorial for the keyboard was brief and to the point. Keyboard only?? (That's it?!?!)


a little big and clunky but not so bad as I have the enV99000

backlighting on keyboard not bright enough (for me), esp on the right side in numbers are moreso Had Slate color front/ gray slide out keyboard, now have Black and it looks WAY better with black slide out keyboard that I never use.

TeleNav didn't work any better on this Works fine after newest update

No flash or user controls on camera

Track ball is too sensitive, actually annoying but am trying... and am succeeding. Starting to like it more now.

Near flush camera button & volume rocker

The included adapter for the proprietary headset

1 gig MicroSD included (no adapter - boo)
