    Sounds very nice indeed but likely to slide into q2 sucks.

    It'll probably be the Desire HD for me then, with the DLNA box for the telly on the side perhaps.

    you can plug the n900 into a tv. the headphone socket doubles as a tv-out

    edit:

    Good luck opening a presentation in maemo though

    You can plug most phones into a telly - it's just that you normally need proprietary cables to do so.

    Pretty high praise:

    Being able to plug a phone straight into any TV is going to be ace - and a great way to share content with friends. I am very close to being sold on the LG.

    Gah. Want. Which means resisting getting a new toy for at least a month.

    At Christmas this year, I went for a snowy mountain walk with my brother and wanted to show my Mum the pics - this phone would have been ace for that.

    And then there's the prospect of surfing on a big screen too.

    It's been there a while, in fact. Price has crept up, it started off at £450.

    I'm also liking the look of the Motorola Atrix...

    Even on my ancient touch HD this feature was a godsend!

    Another review. Looks like it's one firmware update from possible perfection:

    Um if I'm paying a whole heap of cash I'd like my phone to be stable out of the box!

    The phone hasn't actually been released yet, so they'll be using pre production units.

    Ah that would explain this less than stella review (here's hoping it's only a pre production reason why they have stuffed it full of shitware). I really like the look of this phone I have to say but the short comings are a bit off putting...

    The Motorola Atrix is calling my name too...

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    I dunno about that, it'll will be a cold day in hell before I pay for a Motorola phone, I've literally never heard anyone having a good experience with their devices no matter what model or range!

    Lengthy video review from a couple days back:

    Engadget have their review online.

    As do anandtech.

    I'm looking at a new smartphone and this should be a strong front runner however i've had bad experiences with LG phones in the past and this instability issue means i'll probably hold off for a HTC model...

    Means you'll get sense as well. :)

    Can understand many preferring stock android, but I don't mind it and would rather use then any of the other customized offerings.

    I think customised UI's should be optional really. As nice as sense UI is I much prefer how my mum's Nexus S running stock Android looks.

    It's just picked up a pretty amazing review here and the battery life looks very good:

    Well that's high praise isn't it! A phone good enough to temporarily hold a man's attention.

    Be interested to see what a more objective source says tbh...

    It is if you have a drawerful of the very latest phones.
