Yeah, I wouldn't jump at it either - I don't like the look of it and I'm perfectly happy with my Hero now that they've released the v2 upgrade (which you'll get on your Sprint version by default I think).
For me it'll take an Android device with a faster CPU to get me to switch to anything else now.

You guys are lucky in some regards to be getting the Hero a little later than us in the UK - with the v1 software the phone really was quite annoyingly laggy ... and the music app caused stutter at the start of each track constantly. I could easily understand people trying it and turning straight back to the iPhone.
The v2 software really spruces up the phone. I still get the occasional music stutters (which you wouldn't with the iPhone), but only when I've been running lots of apps simultaneously (which you can't with the iPhone) - a quick reboot always solves it.

What is killing the Cilq for me is the price. I just do not see it versus the Hero on Sprint. Hero has better specs I believe (if I am wrong please tell me), $20.00 less and the plans are cheaper on Sprint. I would think T-Mobile and Moto better rethink this one, $200. final cost does not do it for me.

The pictures don't do this phone justice. i had the chance to play with one for 24hr (last week). Looks really good in person, and the D-pad took me just an hour to get used to and was nice for getting to links on webpages. Faster than the mytouch and g1. I'll bet you guys like it once it hits the stores.

The phone seems like something those middle schoolers with sidekicks will get when they graduate to highschool. Thats the main reason why I didn't get one.Siemens CF62T> Samsung T329 Stripe Black> MyTouch 3G Black (Android 1.6 Donut)> Blackberry Bold 9700 (126.96.36.1990)> Samsung T219 Brown (backup crap dumbphone)> Google/HTC Nexus One (CM7.2)> Google/LG Nexus 4 (Android 4.2.2)
