I've been using it for a few days now, and at first, it was quite  
slow. Then I hacked around, uninstalled a few things, and found a  
little app that activates a user defined swap. So far it's worked like  
a charm. I can make calls, but haven't tested receiving them (all my  
friends are getting sick of me asking for them to call me). I'd say  
it's as fast if not faster GUI wise than SHR or Hackable. Wifi and SMS  
both also work, but you still can't import contacts from SIM. Big  
downside to the release is the lack of a marketplace app, so finding  
things to install is a challenge. has a few free apps.
