32gb yes, but it's slow (<>1MB/s) whatever the card... (enough for movies... :) )

I have <>20 divx on it so far... half-full.

Thanks... how about the voice part of it, how is it for making calls?

You shouldn't be disappointed... the loudspeaker near your ear, the mic near your mouth...the UX seems to have been designed for it (well... I'm left-handed...). The audio quality is very correct. The windows interface is simple but complete.

The only 'issue' (which makes me keep a cell-phone) is the lack of 'wake on call' feature... the UX can't wake up... (too old...)

HTC has a huge Evo 4G, better than Shift.

Well, I work as a web designer so I need a computer decent enough speed, but when out with clients, I only show work in progress or completed websites that are not very energy efficient. But . For the moment I carry around my MacBook Pro, which is a little big. and not as fast as a Mac Pro. I tried the Sony UX and if it has been fantastic, think the screen resolution, but thought it was a bit small. Then look at the 10-11 laptops think they are a little too big, so Shift would be ideal.
