    Oh damn, it looks kinda like an Apple product if you squint and look at it from the right angle, time for another lawsuit from the Cupertino camp. Not a bad phone for the price, be interested to see some reviews when it starts getting around.

    If it's only offered on contract then it's moot to me. If it wasn't then it could've been a decent alternative to these other uber expensive things.

    Phones are getting to big for a woman's pockets. I thought that this was funny or a joke until I had a discussion with the ladies around my house and found that newer phones do not fit in their pockets. They're so large that when sitting down new phones might fall out.

    Meanwhile I fit an entire DVD, case and all, into my Manly pants pocket and told them, "function over fashion." They only sneered at me.

    My wife won't even carry keys in her pockets! Sounds like your women are more practical than some :)
