Excellent device for all things WRITTEN. Email and text mess. were amazing (especially with photos inserted). Embedded AOL Instant Messenger function is great for chat-junkies. Photo gallery and desktop interface are definite pluses. Full-QWERTY keyboard makes typing a walk in the park. The huge (for a device!) screen and the HTML browser work really well. Super-easy trackwheel operation for menu navigation.
Two-handed operation definitely a let down for people used to one-hand, one-thumb control for most handset functions.
The phone function itself is nice to have but definitely NOT the main attraction of this device. I recommend using the ear piece ; sound quality is good, but not great. Phone function menus are an afterthought and it shows.
All in all, a great device, as long as you are not looking for voice services as your star feature.
