I have a HTC Universal, and trust me, this thing really does have it all. It's so powerful it can play 700MB XVID movies WITHOUT having to re-encode them like you have to do on almost all other devices, and battery life is many orders of magnitude better than all laptops.
It comes with Skype and MSN pre-installed in ROM usable over wi-fi or 3G, so you can war-drive, chat to your mates, video conference, VNC or RDP into a desktop PC, GPS navigation for your car, hell there is hardly anything this device cannot do.
Why Americans seem so obsessed with these pathetic little Blackberries I do not know - you enjoy your "email" while I have fun with Skype, MSN, IRC, VNC, RDP, etc. at 640x480 over 3G/wi-fi on my HTC Universal.
