    Why is a 3.5 inch screen or better so much to ask for an Android phone?

    3-year voice/data agreement? I've had my phone for 4 months and I can't wait to get a new one.

    Why? Why? Why? are we seeing "targeted" phones?! I just don't get it. For the love of… please just make a decent phone with a base load of Android (that I can easily upgrade) and let **ME** decide what I want to put on the damn thing.

    I'd love to see this one on AT&T (for my gf) and T-Mobile (for me).

    Finally a decent looking Android phone with an actual keyboard. I've been stalling on my first smartphone.. and this is tempting, but I think I'll wait for the Snapdragon-powered devices coming in the next couple months. Also the screen on this is a little small, and I hear it can't run Flash. Though no confirmation on that.

    I just got this phone yesterday and I love it. I've been using a blackberry pearl for the last 2 year and was looking for a new smartphone. This one is great.
