This picture makes it appear that the case will be a metalic blue color.....much better than the grey we have seen before. And I like the icons.....very cool.

Hmm... the ESC key looks huge. The icons look spiffy, but not a fan of the unit design.

Look closely at the Keypad. There are some noticable changes in the various "symbol" keys and other changes.

Cingular corporate sales just told me it would be next year. Not saying anyone is wrong, just what I was told.

That's funny. I recall reading an article where Lance talks about how he was riding somewhere and using his BB while on the bike. He had a moment of clarity and pitched the thing into a lake, the ocean, or some other body of water. I thought "Way to go Lance, wish I could chuck my BB and be free." Now he's a BB celeb? Once again, "way to go Lance."
