We’ve managed to get some exclusive hands–on time with the new touchscreen mobile and it really is a peach. As well as the iPhone–beating 3.2MP camera and HSDPA up to a broadband–baiting 7.2Mbps, you’ll find TouchFlo 3D, the multitouch system for scooching around the OS.
There’s also an ambient light sensor so you won’t need to squint like your reaching retirement age every time you read a text out in the sun.
Add to that GPS and an accelerometer and you’re looking at a phone that is a more than viable alternative to Apple’s boy wonder.
