It is, without a doubt, one of the most expensive phones we will have around here (Brazil). Unfortunately, that IS the normal price for high end phones at their release. Last year Nokia N97 started costing something around that (1.000 or 1.100 U$). Today it is almost the same price as the Milestone.
I guess the Milestone is cheaper BECAUSE it is made here (Zona Franca de Manaus). Not sure about the others I've mentioned though.
i have this phone, really good, but calling its battery impressive is a bit too much:)
I live in Brazil, just don´t know how could a .9cm equip handle an antenna and digital tv... I think it´s not real..
The price don´t make sence either, since Motorola Milestone was R$ 1.700,00, Galaxy S coming at R$ 2.400,00 will not sell well.
Well... that´s Brazil... a Joke Country.
