Views after 2 weeks

Not knowing I wouldn't be able to edit or submit a 2nd one, I submitted a review before I bought this phone. I've now had it 2 weeks. I might bump my 3.5 rating to 3.75, 4.0 at most. This is a pretty good phone. Much better call quality than the last 2 Palm devices I've had. BT seems to work well w/my 2 yr old Plantronics. Speaker phone is good.
Screen is good for viewing. Touch screen way behind Iphone level - I'm guessing this is mostly b/c of WinMo? Camera laggy. Have to play w/it a lot to find optimal range, zoom etc to get good pictures. Ambient light a big problem. Frustrated with the minimal number of apps or widgets available. MS apps are way overpriced for the most part.
Contact search is really bad. On-screen keyboard not good. No haptic/tactile feedback, no "exploding" letters like Droid or Iphone to show what letters you hit. Swype is kind of cool, but also annoying. Works better on longer words.
I'm not sure I will keep this device. I have until 1/4 to decide. If I return it I will probably go with Eris for low cost and wait to see if Passion/Bravo is what I'm looking for.
