I do. I've had it since the launch and absolutely love it. It is not  
my first smart phone, but it is the first smart phone I actually  
utilize most of the functionality of, since it makes it makes things  
ridiculously easy. The web browser is amazingly functional, since you  
can double tap to intelligently zoom in on paragraphs (and you start  
zoomed out and viewing the whole page so first you can get the "lay  
of the land"). The e-mail client -- especially if you have IMAP -- is  
great. It's a very worthy iPod, to boot. Oh, and its calling features  
are great: moving through contacts is really easy and intuitive, it  
can do six-way calling (and adding/dropping calls is a snap), and  
visual voicemail is simply the best thing ever to come to voicemail.

The only con is that I'm not sure it will work with any Linux sync  
programs. I'm not sure if that is an issue for you.

But otherwise, I can't endorse it highly enough. For $399, it's a  
great buy, considering that it isn't just like an iPod, it is an  
iPod; it isn't like an internet tablet, it IS an internet tablet, etc.

If you want to know anything more about specific features, just let  
me know.
