Here's one of those good news-bad news situations.

The good news: The price for the MWg Zinc II just dropped a couple of hundred dollars.

The bad news: It's still $499.

Hey, saving $200 is still saving $200. But despite the Zinc II's decent specs (albeit not nearly as impressive in the wake of the recent HTC onslaught) and lack of any carrier support, we're still not expecting anyone to be lining up for this on.

But if you in fact do have one, drop us a line and let us know what you think of it.
