I have a full pim suite, gps, wireless, and phone all working on mine
perfectly. I still haven't been able to get gprs to work and haven't
played with bluetooth yet, but overall i'm impressed with how well the
phone actually works.

But none of the images are perfect, the 2007.2 image has the most apps
and best home. ASU has the best SMS interface but worse launcher. And
FSO has the best dialer but has no other apps :P
