After 24hours of using it, I know that I've yet to realise the full potential of my new toy. SDIO, Bluetooth, 32chord MIDI and etc remains to be tested and experimented, but I love it!
Quickly rushed over to Funan Centre after work and forked out $18 for the staff at AAAS to apply the screen protector onto my delicate XDA screen. It's a must must. Somehow.

That's it. This phone will keep me company for a year or more, just like my old trusty XDA. Glad that it's leaving my hands to someone worthy of its service, just like my trusty Siemens S45; I miss you too.
