Well, I saw the V3 the other day, and I had to have it. So I figured when better to buy it then on black friday, the busiest day of the year. The Cingular Store I got it from wasn't busy at all, so I was happy. I just got off of work, and havn't had time to really play with it yet. But these are my initial thoughts on it. Ill post more indepth once I get a chance. First off, I love the form factor. Its a bit wider than you might expect, but very thin and light. The screen on it is awesome, and very large. ( the 30 cinema display of cellphones if you will. ok maybe not but its darn close.) It seems like navigation is much easier on the large screen. The external screen seems pretty pointless. I Guess pictures pop up of people if you have apictured assigned to their number. Kinda cool I guess. The keybad is really neat with a blue backlight. THe bottons are similar to the click wheel on the ipod, they move, but not much. It also uses this mini mini usb type port to charge. Not compatible with all the other Motorola phone charges. The guy at the store told me it was. It is thicker at the bottom as you can see in the ads for it, similar to the iMac G5. It seems to be made out of Aluminium like the V600 is. Sound and voice quality is good, as with other Motorola Phones on the GSM networks. GSM provides the best quality service IMO, but it can be taken as fact too, its that darn good. So far the phone doesnt have any new features over my V600, other AIM mobile built in. You definitly are paying a premium for the style factor. If anyone else has got, I would love to hear what you think as well. If you got questions feel free to post'em and ill do my best to answer them. I can take pics too if ya want too. Anyways, hopes this helps someone out there.
