It is a great device. I have always liked the full keyboard devices rather than its counterparts (7100g and soon to be 7130c). However, the 7290 didnt have a speaker and the resolution wasnt as clear as it was on the 7100g.
Well good news, they added it as well as EDGE which makes web browsing very easy. Plus, I didn't have to lose the full keyboard to get it.
The only issue that seems to be a flaw (that hasn't happened to me yet) is the dust that seems to collect under the screen.
Overall, It is a great device and I am very happy with it. It is sleaker and faster and the memory is much larger. The battery could be better, but I ain't picky.
