Looks like one of Danger’s trial users has broken their NDA for Boy Genius Report and leaked tons of info on the Zante. Photos of the device from all angles, some screenshots of OS 4.0, and comparisons to a Sidekick 3 and an iPhone. He gives a quick review and promises of a video review to come. Here’s a summary, keep in mind that this is a trial device and not necessarily what TMobile is going to release:
Operating System: Not much new other than system sounds and a prettier look.
Instant Messaging: More reliable.
Size: About the size of a Blackberry 8800, rubberized finish, plastic body.
Keyboard: Pretty good, circular keys, wish there was more tactile feedback
Reception: No concerns, seems about the same
Call Quality: Quality on par or better than Sidekick 3. Good location for earpiece
Speaker Volume/Quality: Really loud external speakers. Speaker is by the Tmobile logo.
Catalog: Disregard what he says, this is a trial device. Trial users have a different catalog than normal users. Hopefully themes aren’t going to cost $2.99 apiece or everyone will keep getting them for free.
Looks like BGR’s WordPress is currently broken, but we were able to grab copies of the photos and add them to this post.
