Damn, I am so tempted to go ahead and order one!!! Could someone please post a couple comparision pix with it next to a V3/V3i. OR is there maybe a review online that has some pix comparing it with outher phones that I may have missed.
Why do you say the hinge takes some getting used to?
I got the phone today and after playing around with the hinge for a few minutes it's definately not as snappy as I thought it would be. If the phone isnt held at an angle or flat the lid doesn't completely spring up and it doesn't snap shut like the razr's lid. I can close the razr's lid with a quick flick of the wrist or tapping the lid next to something. Not so with the 6131. It's just not as smooth as the razr's. Could just be my phone.
I can't wait till its charged to really play around with it. I'll try and get some comparison shots of it next to my v3i.

This and that...
OK, just got it. It's a nice little mobile. The flip mechanism works fine on mine. Screen is nice. Audio nice and clear. It has the same footprint as my V710, but not as thick. Camera works. FYI, camera will not work while phone is charging. If I had to compare it to another phone, I'd say it's a flip version of the 6270 WITHOUT the vm icon issue (I just tested it). Interesting thing in the menu. Under Phone Settings there's an option for "Install software update." I wonder if this is for OTA updates? Pics and more to come later all.
Mine was made in Hungary.
