Versatile and handy
Strengths: Great for chatting on GTalk, Yahoo Messenger and best of all Skype calls.
Weakness: Keyboard is not back-lit: Unable to chat in low light situations.
Unlike other Skype phones, this is probably the best since you can use the browser to log into hotspots that require you to click and agree to the terms of their service using a web-browser login. The call quality is not bad, but the mic could be more sensitive.
