    And now for something completely different….

    499? You have got to be kidding me !The same price as the iphone or the hero/legend or the milestone , this is just ridiculous.At least the LG GW620 (which is just as crappy as this one) is 300.How exactly do they expect this to sell when its priced as a mid range smartphone when its simply not(its low end , for those still wondering).This is in the same range as the tattoo which goes for 250.

    Who buys these phones ? Are we serious ? This has is some ways worse specs than the G1 back in 08 if anyone still remembers…

    PS I dont think the final price will be that high.350 is the maximum price for this and i d buy it for anything under 250.

    We’re all missing the point: morons will still buy this.

    The Desire for me any day

  • not worth it

    not wroth the money. Wait for better “open Android” phone. Check out Sprint’s HTC 4G coming out some time in June.

  • The price of greatness…

    I’m not sure where the people that are commenting are from, but the manufacturers price for the phone has always been high. Here in China, you can get the backflip for around $440 USD. It’s when you buy into a phone plan / subscription that your price of the phone goes down, but your cellular fees are much more expensive…

    Here’s hoping that this thing gets out to more people and gets rooted. Got on for my wife because she said my Droid was ugly. Anyway she likes the phone but I think she would like it much better with 2.1, full market and all that AT&T bloatware ripped off of it.
