The original one, which looks just like the new one from the outside.
I haven't had a chance to fully "ring out" the new phone yet, but so far it's looking really good. For one thing, the battery cover comes off this one without too much trouble. The first one was more difficult than I felt it should be. This one is just right. It's not going to come open when I don't want it to, but I don't feel like I'm going to break the phone when I open it. Also, the stylus fits better. It was too hard to get out on the first phone, at least for the first few goes. After that it wasn't quite so bad, but it was still more trouble to get out than I felt it should be. This one is, again, just right. It hasn't loosened up any with use, either.
I've got the new phone on my home's WiFi network again, and soon I'll have everything configured just as I had it on the first phone. It looks like there have been some minor changes to the software. I'll be posting more on the phone soon.
