I tried it a few days ago:

- I liked the installation. They package everything in a single  
tarball that you expand on your SD card. Boot from the card, and it  
installs QI, kernel, and root fs. No mucking about trying to figure  
out which kernel works with what release
- After the first time booting (which will take a very long time. Let  
it sit for a while), it boots fairly quickly.
- UI is fast and responsive

- Connectivity just isn't there, at least for me. It would find my  
open wifi, but kept dropping (even when I was sitting right next to  
the base station. Could not connect to my service provider with any  
sort of strength (AT&T). I get full bars in SHR.
- It seemed to "forget" settings. I changed the ringtones, and it went  
back to the default

After not being able to use it as a phone, I went back to SHR. In all,  
a good start, and something I'll be keeping my eyes on
