    I like the face of this device but I can't say I really like the way the turquoise battery integrates with it (I don't mind the colour though) and it does seem pricey for mid range specced blower but the availability of apps will really decide it's future.

    People who want an uncommon, hardly-heard of and pointless-to-hack phone, who dont give two craps about angry birds. I would think. (Of course thats sorta counter productive if a quarter of a million of them get sold.)

    Sounds like a phone for me, if I were rich.
