    Other than FM radio this sounds just like my Android phone with Gmail calendar. What's the point? Redundancy?

    I believe the point is … if you have a family…. you wont have to go to the fridge and check or write on the calendar. It is all synced and can be updated on the go with your phone. Did you even read the article Xidroid? Or just look at the picture? There is quite a bit of difference here. I dont think I have to name them really.
    Any word if it will come to Tmob USA? I would get one if it had the right price.

    What about the ICD Ultra (7" version) and the 11" version (not yet given a name)?

    What about T-Mobile USA?

    I'm rather interested in the 11" version, if I could use it as a general tablet.
