    Hard to tell how far along it is from the computer-generated pic. Nothing on whether it will have UMTS/HSDPA.

    It is really rather ugly lol.......... Interesting concept with the touch jog strip thingy nevertheless.

    So, everybody agrees that it is just another ugly phone?

    I prefer my own very slightly modified design - no skirt.

    Evidently HTC bought a few ugly pills from Blackberry.

    It's funny how just making the lines straight improves the look ten fold!

    Also, it wasn't entirely clear from the linked article but I think it runs Junior WM5 = Smartphone rather than Grown Up WM5 = PPC.

    Palm, Palm, wherefore art thou, Palm?

    Its definitely smartphone, you can see by the size of the icons. It does however have WIFI (but no 3G). If its small and durable I can imagine it could slip quite easily into one's pocket. Also the success of the Moto Q means the disadvantages of the smartphone platform (primarily lack of software) is rapidly being eroded.

    I don't like the look of that 5-way and buttons. Playing NES games on a Treo is taxing enough.

    They took one step forward with the design of the StarTrek and then take 10 steps backward!

    Looks like a Blackberry after a couple of boxes of twinkies...

    I wouldn't bet too heavily on the pic being exactly like the device that comes to market. In leaked-pic-land the HTC Trinity has gone from this:



    to this:



    and we've yet to see the real thing.

    Looks aside the keyboard looks very functional!

    ...really cant say until I use it but from the picture it looks like it has a better keyboard than either my Q or 700w.

    ..it is about the size of the Samsung i320 from what they said in the article so if that's true it will be very portable/pocketable.

    ...i don't think anyone likes the way the BB's look but as far as functionality (for its intended purpose) it is definitely a nicely designed device. IMO

    Could be worse ... could be Garnet.

    Surur's modded version looks good. Not better to me though that the original.
    The buttons look like a dead ringer for the 700s buttons, just a bit closer together and not as much curve.

    Hoestly, it would be nice if Palm did come out with a variation on this design, its Treo-enough of a look for them to pull it off.
