I just played with it
Impressions: The size is not a drawback at all, its actually good- esp. if you have man size hands.
And it looks good too, better than the 7000.
The problem with it is that it is too heavy, and the weight is not evenly distributed- its more in the bottom.
The pictures actually don't look very good on the phone either, probably b/c its screen is only 176X220- but i assume they look better off the phone.

Those damn bastards keep on delaying and delaying it. 😡 I should've gotten the 9900 back in October when I almost did 😢 and I wouldn't be in such a difficult position right now. You keep on saying the 8000 has a really good inner screen, but I don't like it- looks the same as the 7000 to me, pixely. 😛 Motorolas do a better job of smoothing out the image. I hope the 8940 does too. IMO phones w/QVGA screens are the only ones to get. 😉 The 9900 didn't have enough features for me (mp3, bluetooth, expansion card/ big memory, higher speed data, etc.)But its somehow not offensive compared to other phones and has the ni
