I think the review has covered most of the main points but just to share some extra observations that I've had over the past day since I picked it up from the launch event:

The good
* Pre-installed with quite a large bunch of apps. Fun to explore what each one does. Some may find this annoying though (clutter)
* Contrary to the review, i found using swype very easy even in portrait orientation. Even though I've never used it before I was able to jump right in
* I'm not sure why some other reviews on the net bash the screen quality, especially the viewing angles. I found the screen quality including viewing angles to be very good. In fact, I would say that the viewing angles are better than most TN panels and even some PVA panels
* 3G reception seems very solid. Noticeably better than my HTC HD2 from the same locations

The bad
* The plastic casing is rather slippery which may make it abit hard to hold securely sometimes. A silicone case might be a good idea
* The orientation sensor/screen rotation is abit over-eager and sometimes rotates the screen even when held only with a slight tilt
* The automatic screen brightness is far too dim!
* The tiny covers on the MicroSD and SIM card (regular sized!) slot seem rather flimsy
