The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Sprint's new PPC-6700

I am currently looking at this COOL new PPC PE from Sprint. It is a GREAT device with a few uncorrectable issues, but 1st:

the GOOD- 1. It is the 1st Pocket PC Phone Edition to sport WM 5.0 (and I LOVE the new OS!) By beating everyone to punch for 5.0, Sprint has a sure winner for all of you early adopters out there. Samsung's i730 (Verizon) is WM 2003 2nd Edition, but should receive an upgrade in the near future.
2. The larger keyed, landscape oriented QWERRTY keyboard gets my vote for the best "thumb" keyboard I have ever used, with 1 exception (see the UGLY below)

3. The numeric layout of the keys is across the TOP row, so no more Palm 600/650, mini number dialing or numeric input--a big PLUS! A double-tap of button acts as a NUM lock (unlike the Samsung i730 that does NOT have a NUM lock option, and a poor numeric keyboard layout for left-handers (like me).

4. There a 5 programmable hardware buttons, but see the BAD below for addition information. The i730 has 5 buttons, but they are easier to map due to the hard engraved, recognizable icons.

5. The device will sync and charge using a STANDARD USB 2.0 mini cable!!! The Samsung i730 has a unique, proprietary Mini-USB "looking" cable, that, if lost, is a big problem, and it does not charge the unit.

6. Removable, replaceable battery! The unit can also use an optional extended life battery. The charger is equipped to charge the unit with this battery (or the standard battery) installed, as well as charging either battery in a 2nd charging bay. This is similar the i730, however, Samsung includes both batteries in the retail package.

7. Decent built-in still and video camera with light.

8. Built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, and EV-DO high speed data that can be tethered to a laptop. The i730 has all three as well, but cannot be tethered to work as a high-speed laptop modem.

the BAD:

1. Mini-SD slot! I have so many standard SD cards, now I have get the mini's. (I never even liked the Mini Cooper.) If you are going to have a Mini SD, complement it with a standard SD slot as well.

2. The unit has no place to attach a bungie. I am waiting for my 6700 to plop into the toilet at an inopportune moment. The i730 has a bungie hole to spare me this experience.

3. As mentioned above, the programmable hard buttons are difficult to map. I am hoping to get a map from Sp...
