    Just got my Focus from AT&T. Got there around 10:05 -- was not crowded at all. Now to do the ceremonial unboxing video and have some fun with it.

    Finally got it to accept my microSIM with adapter. Now it's up and running.

    First impressions. Awesome. Vivid display, super responsive. Screen is larger than I had expected. Typing is also real easy. This is a really nice phone.

    It's also fast. No lag whatsoever.

    Yes. I just loaded up Maps and it found me. I'm also inside my house, so it's a little off.

    Welcome to the site!

    I looked at the same cases, didn't get either. I wish they had the Incipio Feather for the Focus, but only had it for the Quantum.

    Completely different OS than both. The phone feels lighter than both. Display reminds of Nexus One, but bigger and improved. IMHO, keyboard is also better than stock Android keyboard. While it's bigger than both the N1 and iPhone, it doesn't feel like it's a bigger phone, probably because it's so light. Having said that, I don't think I could use phone bigger than this one. 4 inch display is more than enough.
