    Thanks for the news release reposting. It provides invaluable insight and analysis that wasn't available anywhere else. Especially the info about vague upgrade policies, lack of multi-touch, some links to reviews, that sort of thing.

    Anyway. Can't one of these “blogs” please broach the fact that people who don't buy their handsets from Rogers are paying subsidized pricing anyway? Effectively those people are paying around 20% more than they need to?

    If only it had Android 2.01 or 2.1 then it might be worth looking at.

    Yeah, shipping a Snapdragon phone with 1.6 was just a bad move. Lack of multitouch and a sketchy virtual keyboard is a pretty big deal too depending on who you ask. Personally I don't think I'd miss multitouch, it's more of a gimmick than a feature per se, but it's still handy. When putting together a high end smartphone for release in 2010 with no physical keyboard or trackball it's not the kind of thing you just “leave out”

    Looks like it may support multitouch.. http://i.engadget.com/2010/04/16/sony-ericsson-

    I've read that the panel they used can support it, just not as well as some other devices.

    There are some intuitive gestures, including pinch/zoom, that should work across all phones, so anyone can pick one up and it will work as expected. Although it is kind of funny to watch an iPhone user try to pinch when it doesn't work.
