    availability is November. they announced a bunch of European dates/prices today.

    Pricing will be a bit lower than iphone based on comparisons in Europe.

    I'm pretty excited about Windows 8 and the tablet/phone integration, if for no other reason than C# is a much nicer language than objective C or Java. But what I'm really hoping for is that open webOS takes off and we see more open source competition for Android. Android is ugly and slow and click-happy. WebOS is pretty and responsive and gesture-happy. But Android has Google.

    This is cool. My phone is a GPS second only to the actual phone, and I hate waiting for maps to download.
    Ugh. Too friggin' big, like every other phone on the market. And does the gloves claim mean that the screen is resistive instead of capacitive? I hope not.

    I loved WebOS, but it's time to let the dream go. Open or not, it's a dead platform.

    RIMM is going to make a comeback. Just putting it out there.

    I'm looking into the porting libraries to see how big a deal it is to compile for different devices. I'd be perfectly happy with a Cyanogenmod-esque team that releases Open webOS ROMs for Android devices. Or, better yet, for companies to start building platform-independent hardware that plays well with other operating systems. But I dream...

    for any of you Amurrikans interested in this phone, rumor is that Amazon will be selling it unlocked for $400 during December.

    I handled it yesterday and really like it, especially the screen.

    The os is eh, nothing supper pretty but I might be able to live with it.

    I am really thinking of getting this, The camera is the only thing I am worried about. Hopefully it's as good if not better than the iPhone 5's camera. (What I currently have)
