Nice phone indeed, would have only thought they would have just attached a usb 3.0 option for when that kicks in just to be safe. But non-the-less it don't make much of a diff when running a phone wit 1GB ram.

You know this phone is pretty much irrelevant. No matter how good a phone is, people will still want an iPhone.


Get over yourself.

I suspect it will be around the price of a new unlocked N97. In the US its $650. So about R6000 right? Not chump change by any means.

Whats useful is it supports VoIP calls so you can run skype and make free phone calls.

I'm eating beans and rice to afford this when it comes out.
