"It's early days yet, and we're broadly happy with how we're seeing Vista adoption, but we always expected that the business uptake would be driven by their needs rather than the availability of Vista [SP1]"

Originally, bluetooth was in our product spec, however, this was left
out. But after all the incredible demand, post-November, we felt it had to be done....We had a string of bad luck...One thousand little Murphy's seems to be what we have running around teasing this project...Do we
delay again, wait for the hardware and software to be ready, or do we
just open up now..."

The device changes the trademark clickwheel to a series of "areas" on the bezel. This supposedly solves the problem of fingerprints and smudges on the full screen by forcing two-handed operation.
Please Steve, just put the clickwheel on the back!
