    These phones are perfect for drug dealers. It's plenty expensive so you could show off the swag and you can beat rival cartel members to death with it... Paired with Tmobile, you can rest knowing that the feds aren't listening to your calls since you can't hear them yourself.

    So, uhm, lemme get this straight. 2.5 inch screen, max 2.3gb storage, and a 2mp camera?
    All for $1700. What a bargain!

    I'll never understand this market. Is impressing your friends that important? If so then this isn't impressive. I'll share EXACTLY what is thought when you show this off:

    You whip the device out, pretending to not care if those around you see it while desperately hoping someone does

    Us-We notice. While on the outside we remain calm, on the inside we are wishing we could take a pic and make one of the interweb memes with a clever fitting caption and post it on your facebook page. We also start to pity you, cause if we did post a clever interwebs meme on your facebook page, you'd miss it cause your device
    A. can't connect to the webs
    B. couldn't display it large enough for you to be insulted by our clever caption.
    C. you couldn't save it cause your WAP porn site collection is sucking up (no pun) your sd card.

    Have a nice day, and next time buy your trophy wife a companion to keep her company while you are away on business. I'm sure you can find something satisfactory in the $1700 range. I doubt the pool boy charged that much.

    To add. And somewhat contrary to what Jay says.
    You must admit it looks awesome. Capdot is right. Drug dealers. You whip that out and everybody around you ducks for cover.

    Kinda reminds me of my old BB Pearl (8100).

    Wonder if the author forgot the decimal point. Maybe its really $17.00
