Good: The look of the thing
Bad: Freezes up on almost every sync
Comment: I bought 2 of these for my travelling salespeople.
The phone looks great, & the sliding keyboard is a winner.
However, it locks up almost every time it attepts to sync with my Exchange Server (2003), even when ActiveSync & Outlook Mobile are the only 2 applications running. Other WM6 devices syncronizing with the same Exchange Server do so almost flawlessly (recently upgraded Treo 750's).
I am willing to accept a certain amount of instability from a device that is running a newer Microsoft OS, but the regularity with which the thing dies is frankly unacceptable.
If you want a phone that looks good, go for it. If you want a phone that works, don't.
