blackberry curve 8900 - first impressions

great screen; thin and light; round-shaped.

design, visual:
new icons too cold and mechanical-looking.

mechanical -
new trackball is better; charge and headset on right side bad.
micro-usb and new battery break my investment.

contact list has useless spaces between them - 6 on screen instead of 12 before; partial words search works - "a g" finds both alex.somebody@gmail.com and peter.good@a.company.net.

wifi setup sketchy - did not detec my hotspot@home from t-mobile.

google set - gtalk and gmail (usual), maps (latitude included), sync (calendar only 6 months forward; contacts - no pics, birthdays, categories)
facebook - merges facebook notifications to messages screen; syncs calendar and contacts into blackberry apps
rememberthemilk - pending.
