Similar to the release (or lack thereof?) of the LG Ally last week, another lower-end handset came to market under the radar as everyone fussed over Google I/O. The regional carrier Cincinnati Bell dropped the Commtiva Blaze onto its airwaves for $99.99 on a two-year contract (and after a $100 mail-in rebate). The phone retails for $299.99 off contract.
I hate to say it, but with the introduction of 2.2, Android 1.6 is looking more “meh” than ever. Hard to get excited about all of these “legacy” Android phones (see Android team Q&A), but if you are on Cincinnati Bell and want to get your hands on their exclusive Android handset, have at it.
