I've been running .152 for the past 24 hours, and so far it's worked well for me. I haven't tried youtube -- I imagine I'd have the same problems others have reported -- but everything else has seemed to work well. I've had WiFi/UMA turned on as my preferred connection, and it connects when I'm at home (and is blazingly fast) and reconnects when I'm at my local library or Panera (haven't tried other locations yet, but these three are representative). I've had BeeJiveIM logged into three accounts all day, Facebook app running, Viigo and Google Maps running (using GPS), and the 8900 has been fast and responsive. I've been using it like this for about 12 hours so far, and the battery is at 85%. So far so good...
