Are you planning to do the upgrade to 2.1?  If you do, please report how it 
goes :)

I'm thinking of getting a new phone for my fiancee for Christmas, and this 
looks like it could be a good one for her - I'm slightly put off by the fact 
it's running the ancient Android 1.6, but if it can be upgraded easily (and 
still runs well afterwards) I might be tempted, possibly :)
