Keeping an eye on the Skiff too.
So far, I like what I see.
And I guess, being from "expensive" Europe, I'm less surprised about the price.
I've paid 499 for iRex 800S, without WiFi.
Que, without 3G, is $ 649 = 490 if I can avoid the European taxes, customs, ...
If I compare features and assume about the same price, I guess Que is more than okay.
If I go the "standard way" I'll end up around 650 = 30% more than iRex 800S. Still explainable = WiFi, more GBs, bigger display, ....
Skiff is interesting as well of course.

About the bezel: I've got no problems with the dimensions of the bezel. But I agree: The former photos showing some kind of "dark creme color" have been less "intrusive". But I don't have any problems with the dark iRex iLaid, so it may be fine.
