    While lacking some of the most useful features of a traditional Smartphone, this thing is very cool and I'd likely want one 'just because'. If money were no object, I'd pre-order!

    No idea who Chobbits is, but if he's anything like RoBoHoN, he must be quite a cool guy...?

    I didn't think anything would tempt me away from windows phone and back to android, but here it is.

    I just get a feeling a I can't afford it (one of the reasons I have a windows phone).

    Naff. I like the features, although they are a bit gimmicky, but not the form factor.

    I have wanted a persocom since I watched it lol. Still one of my favourite Animes. (I wonder if the power switch will be in the same place?)

    Its also very similiar to Deagostinis "Build your own Robi", which is a partwork collection. Full final cost being around the same price range as this. Bargain at only £1300
