My take:

Good: Columbus oval cromo w/Reynolds 631 stays. Weight 11.5 kg. 406 wheels. Rolls when folded.

Maybe not so good: Stick folder, not that compact, not ideal for crowded public transport. New design, will parts wear easily? Price according to FAQ: We anticipate a high quality mid-range model will be around 3000. Seriously?
