    Parm, any chance of adding captions to the 5 videos? After several page refreshes and a lot of waiting, I can now at least see what 4 of the videos relate to, i.e. blank screens; they don't appear to be loading correctly right now.

    So far I can see:
    • Auto corrections
    • Spell it your way
    • Emotions
    • Couple on a roller coaster
    • Unknown

    Or better still, links or break the page up please. Cheers
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    I'm really hating these exclusivity things that happening now days. The infamous one was the iPhone but that was due to apple being choosing their operator. But now it seem that operators are choosing phones to differentiate rather than doing it by plans and tariffs.

    "If you want 'this' phone you have to be with our company and you can only choose between 'these' tariffs".

    I should be able to choose what phone I want, with which company and tariff. :<

    '£35 per month 24 month price plan, whilst the Samsung Omnia 7 will be free to customers who sign up to a £40 per month, 24 month price plan..'

    So not cheap then..... I don't think any mobile is worth £40 per month. (aka £960 over 2 years )

    These are high end phones though, they are never going to be cheap.

    Also the worth depends on what it is worth to you personally, the tariff isn't just for the phone, it pays for your texts, minutes and internet, so that £960 over two years has to be split.

    For some people on pay and go they would spend more, I know I would, as I am a heavy user, the handset is always connected and using data, I call a lot and send a few texts. Therefore I would say I would use £40 (I know I used to on just calls etc) if I was p & g, that means that the phone is essentially free to me and therefore worth it.

    As for the phones themselves, they all look very nice, I think I know a couple of people that might be getting one so it will be interesting to see how they perform.
