    flip phones are not very popular in China (in contrast to Samsung’s native S. Korea), and it’s being released on the smallest mobile telco, so I suspect this is the last i’ll ever see of it, unless the golden lustre of the shell proves a hit with the bling-loving nouveau riche.

    Such an ugly thing, and the second screen is on the OUTSIDE?? hahahahahaha
    I would have given it a 1% chance of ROI if the two screens were side-by-side (together with flip design, with some sophisticated hinge) as that would increase x2 the potential resolution. But like they made it — it ain’t ROIing.
