Hi Jonathon, How would you manage when there are a lot of names? My
phone is also
my phone book, and has pages of names in small print. This is why I
choose a phone with
a good screen and a stylus.  I don't altogether understand the
rationale of insisting on
fingers when there are so many pixels which can present easily read
detail.  Also I don't understand why there is so much emphasis on a
mass market which is already well catered
for; possibly to the detriment of the niche market which wants a lot
of functionality fom the
device. This little phone should be able to replace the laptop a lot
of the time, taking notes
in meetings for example (which i already do on my phone, small and
above all quiet.)
The improvement with the neo will be the easy transfer of such files
to the PC(linux).
