  • Isn't the term 'launches' wrong? Because they haven't launched it yet? I thought the term would be announced?Just curious, let me know if I'm wrong.
  • yea the launch should be reworded. If i recall correctly, Fujitsu windwos phone launched but i don't see any reviews.
  • I keep getting excited when I see this phone is being launched and announced only to see it is being launched in another country.Can we get some love in America? I don't want a 7.5" screen cell phone like the titan or any other gigantic phone out there on the market. I have an HD7 and honestly the screen is way too big. I feel like I'm carrying around an old school Apple Newton. I want THIS phone, preferably on Sprint or Verizon.
  • Where are some phones for Verizon? Can I at least get 1 more option other than the Trophy? I'm ready to trade in my Palm Pre for a Mango, but don't want to get a Trophy only to find out something new may be coming out in a month.
  • Saw something interesting in the source article:"It has 512MB RAM, 8GB Internal Memory that is expandable up to 32GB with MicroSD..."Expandable memory? That's news to me... good news :)I wonder if this is confirmed anywhere.
