    And by Gb, do you mean GB? ‘Cause 4GB ain’t much to upgrade to.

    Android 1.5? Seriously? Why in the world would you put something as obsolete as that on a phone that is just being released? At the very least it should have 1.6 since that greatly improves app compatibility. 1.5 really needs to officially be retired on all handsets.

    I'm with Danny. How could anyone expect to be taken seriously releasing a phone with Android 1.5 (or anything before 2.1)? Gotta accelerate those release cycles to months instead of years, or just stop messing with the UI and release with stock Froyo.

    Perhaps they'd be interesting in buying a computer running Windows 3.1.
