      Yet again, I am in awe of your mad youtube linking skills. Posting a video that has nothing to do with the article, except that both involve Sprint, just boggles my mind. I literally can’t think anymore. /sarcasm (in case you can’t tell)

    Theres no $10 fee? Damn, they knew it was a bad phone.

    I’d rather kill some woodland creatures and have a real phone. Buncha dirty hippies.

    A blue smartphone with a portrait qwerty, finally!

    Queue the influx of hatemongerers who diss the phone because of the “eco” moniker.

  • Yellowfrizbee

    How much will this cost off contract? My friend wants to switch to android from her black berry style, but wont accept anything but a portrait qwerty.

    50 bucks could also buy you 9 lbs of mixed dry beans which don’t go bad and if used as your main diet core 1 person could live off that for up to 4 or 5 months…..choices choices. oh or even better, buy you that tank of gas to get you to and from work to put MORE food on your table

  • Bryce McSherry

    It looks like a blue palm pixi running android. I approve!

    What a joke! So something trully eco griendly and don’t build it. Imagine the ‘carbon footprint’ to build and ship. The left is so easily fooled.
