    the UI looks sweet, if you have a lot of friends [​IMG] (just like the sidekick)

    I don't see the point in this though, for the rest of us with less friends than veronica mars...

    Seems pretty crappy, they basically ripped most of the features from the Iphone, it doesn't even have apps or gaemz

    those buttons.... mashing hell.

    i have enough trouble trying not to press 4 different characters on most qwerty based phones, the only ones i seem to have luck with are a few htc phones.

    though if thats msn shown in the picture, looks pretty cool. though not for me, got too used to touch screen :

    The lack of game support is probably a cost cutting measure. Maybe the more mature Win 7 devices will sport a Tegra and be ready to play hard ball.

    Despite that picture up there "totally new, different, crazy UI, which is based on blocky, simple text, monochromatic elements, and zoomed-in, stylized pictures" sounds like they tried to port ribbon to a phone.

    Oh well it is not like I use a mobile phone anyway. I am somewhat surprised about a lack of applications and along with the whoever wrote the messages for that screen (shot? or workup?) could probably do with a knee to the chin but I would also argue that the signal to noise ratio of the others that went down this line has not been quite so high.

    @B-Blue clearly the guy is either a drug dealer shifting weight or a mob boss in need of some walking around money.

    If that's how you see texts, don't want.

    Anybody notice on that key pad it has a ";)" button?

    Do not want! I don't like the UI.
    Well I'm not on Verizon anyways.

    I'd buy one but the cool phones never come prepaid.

    Boost Mobile is the only carrier that has an actual prepaid plan.
