Been meaning to reply back to this thread .... been hectic here.<br><br>My device is pre-release and has a slip case which I believe will be included.<br><br>Ogg is not included for codec licensing issues... <br><br>Form factor is excellent as is the build and it will apparently get a bit better over the course of the pre-release period along with the updates to the OS for release.
<br><br>Non-Powered USB...can't charge - not sure about keyboard, but I assume not and it's the micro-USB variety.<br><br>MiniSD gives you up to 10GB storage with the internal ... US / Canada maps are preinstalled in much (think it's
around1.8GB) of the 2GB internal and non-removable card which is how you get 256 free there.<br><br>Wimax is next year... I've been told it's "later."<br><br>No FM radio either... <br><br><br>Anything else - I'll likely have an overview blog post up in the next 24-48 hours once i get back to NY have time to think it out a bit with some extended use.
