Pros: With Google handling the Web browser and mapping/GPS features, there's a solid foundation. The touch screen-keypad combo is a nice upgrade over the competition, while the 5-megapixel camera, micro USB port, microSD port that can expand its memory to 32 gigabytes and seven hours of talk time combine into a sturdy bit of smartphone.
Cons: It's on Verizon, which is great as long as you're in the states. Go abroad with it and you'll be carrying a shiny brick. Its video display is gorgeous, but offerings for its player are somewhat limited. Musically, it sounds just fine, but requires wire or memory card file transfers if you're unwilling to download songs from Amazon. As for the keypad, its relatively flat nature makes it slightly more convenient than the touch screen.
