for whatever it's worth i was looking at this phone in circuit city and
while i initially thought it was a sleek cool looking phone from checking it
out on the web, holding it in my hand it felt way too flimsy for me. just
my opinion but this 3 oz phone is too lightweight and fragile for me. also,
the three workers at circuit city were not at all enthused with the phone
either. they prefered either the e815 of the lg3300. i tend to be partial
to tri-mode phones (v710), which just seem to work all-around better for me,
but i'm going to be patient and wait to see what else hits the market in the
next six months.
