I have to say that I agree with everything WinHack said. I would like to add that in some ways this the device is not as "mature" as WM5 and unfortunatly the device shell can't mature without replacement.

The 8125 is great, don't get me wrong. I would just like to point out how it could be better.

The bottons for email and web should have been placed under the screen and, along with the other buttons and navigation, should be up higher on the divice. I say this because the location of the email and web buttons are hard to reach with the same hand I hold the device in - and I have big hands. Also the balance of the device in one hand naturally places the thumb higher than the buttons. There is just something not natural about bottons

It also would simplify the interface to have all the bottons in the same general area.

Calendar and Contact buttons would have been nice, but WM5 puts them on the Today Screen so that the two soft menu buttons are Calendar and Contacts - plus side is less buttons equals less clutter.

Forgive my lack of artistic talent, but this is a example of a smarter button layout:

Redisign the button shaps and sizes, but this config has lots of advantages that remain true even when the device is in landscape mode.
