The uber-hot F490, an Armani-like touchscreen GSM phone with front VGA camera and back 5-megapixel camera just dropped in Europe today for about 500 euros. The F490 has Google Search built-in and uses the Croix UI with haptic feedback and includes a standard 3.5mm jack for audio playback. Expect it on Euro carriers in the next few months and, sadly, not here for a while.
