I think it's the greatest mobile phone ever created, but I'm frustrated with the lack of development being held for it. There is a demand and it's not being met, there isn't enough competition amongst those who develop real world applications for it. Documents-to-go sells for $69.99! That's insane! You can buy MS Office H&S for $99.99, but it's $20 cheaper for a phone! That makes no sense to me. Even as a business phone, I'm sure there are a lot of business man and woman that would like to be able to use their phones for more and more. A theme costs $7 on Crackberry's store. That's just robbery of hard working people. These phones aren't cheap, and for many cost more than iPhones, why not have the ability to have it do more?
DocsToGo Premium is marketed towards the people who have to get things done in case they forgot their $2,000+ ThinkPad at home. Every iPhone user I know has their app pages full. But hardly any of those apps are useful. Most are one-time novelty apps such as iBeer or iFart. Business users don't use novelty apps.

I am fine with the apps I have on my phone and if I want to play games, that's what my iPod touch is for. If you want iPhone apps without the iPhone, then get an iPod touch.
