Hi all,

Does anyone know if there are any good reviews floating around for the
FreeRunner yet?  (And if not, does someone who already has theirs want to
write one?)  I'm a college student so money's very tight and I'm trying to
justify purchasing one, but I want to know exactly what I'm getting first
(in terms of functionality).  Specifically, I'm wondering about:

Cell phone functionality:  Is full cellphone functionality (i.e. sending and
receiving calls/SMS) currently working stably?

Internet connectivity:  At what stage of development is internet
connectivity, both through wifi and the cellular network?  Is there a
decently functional browser yet?

SSH:  Related to above, is SSH working?

Audio:  How functional is the FreeRunner as a PMP?  OGG support is a must
and mp3 and FLAC would be good.

Development & portability:  How easy is it to develop/compile new programs
for the platform and how easy is it to port existing applications?

Misc:  Battery life for normal usage?  Is there a JVM yet?  Ruggedness?
Compatibility with AT&T SIMs?

If anyone has any input on these, it's greatly appreciated.  Feel free to
e-mail me privately if you don't feel it'd be interesting to anyone else on
the list.
