    Philip, that's a very good post on a real quandary.

    Yet I don't think you have any issues, ethical or otherwise, as long as you are 100% open and transparent in disclosing how you got the phone and why. Which you're doing.

    Surely it doesnt matter whether you're technically savvy or not, yourself (and others) are still getting the brand name out there which will encourage those of a techy-nature to explore more about the phone and find answers to any questions themselves. It'd be great to see how sales were affected from the talk generated on blogs...(and now I have another phone campaign in my head - damn BT!)

    I'd rather 'review' the new Microsoft wine...
