Score 2.0/10
Good points:
can get emails where-ever mobile phone works
Bad points:
Lovely theory: but very user UN-friendly. It doesn't use "standard" programs, so it's a bit like reading Dutch, thinking it's German and wondering why you can't understand.
It gets "stuck" frequently.
The resolution is very poor, so if you try to zoom in to read script, it quickly becomes blurred.
I wanted to buy one for my 84 year old father, who has 84 year old vision and therefore couldn't read it at all: the script is usually too small and is often in white on blue, or pale blue or blue so illegible for anyone without "young" eyes.
So disappointing as it's such a good idea.

Sasha, Edinburgh

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
it looks really cute. I bought it for my 9 year old as a birthday present and he loved how small and stylish it was.
Bad points:
It's painfully slow. I'd read reviews that said speed wasn't it's strong point but I didn't expect it to be anything like as tedious as it is. Put it this way, my son only uses it to play games on. For anything else he uses my netbook or the pc because he simply loses patience waiting for the datawind to do anything much.
