Default Windows Mobile 6.5 on the Samsung Jack

The update was released this past Wednesday, found time to do it today. This won't be an in-depth review, yet, but here's some quick observations;

-The phone feels overall a bit sluggish (as I feared it would), but transitions LOOK smoother
-In WM 6.1's Internet Explorer, the Acid3 test simply would not load. On WM 6.5, it loads, and scores a 5/100 (same as Zune HD 4.1, haven't tried 4.3)
-Yes, the browser has full FLASH support, but it's not user friendly, and it's slow (touchscreen devices likely will fare better)
-Some websites load much faster than before, but anything using javascript (remember, it's still IE) or Flash will load slowly
-The "desktop" option seems to work almost flawlessly

The main pros are;
-better web browser (you'll still want to install Skyfire on Standard, Opera/Skyfire on Professional)
-Flash support built in (sluggish and hard to control)
-Windows Mobile Marketplace is active

And the main con is the overall more sluggish feel of the device.

I'm overall impressed, and will edit the original post with a full review ASAP.
