clamshell phones are very cool, i had a v3 and a loved, i think that should have better models with this design, maybe two touchscreens!

I remember my first mobile phone was the V3 and this is so similar. When this comes out, I'd want to buy it and use it when I'm not feeling like using my Nexus. It's nice being simple and oldschool sometimes =)

Looks like the 1st gleam was a success after all!
Personaly i prefer the first one, except this one has a much better display.
They could have improoved the camera and add 3G conectivity

memories of my old v3..all that is needed is for a manufacturer to build a high spec flip and it will sell millions

This is the perfect phone for my mum. I hope it comes to Hong Kong so that I can get it for her as a gift to replace her 5 year old Nokia (which I also got her).

money or the need, for more then a basic phone. Just
looking for a "flip style" phone that can handle
being on a Home Building job site. The "flips" just seem to stay cleaner and hold up better,and also fit on the tool belt easier

Nice to see feature-phones (not to mention clam shells) are making a comeback. Not everyone needs a quad-core phone with a 4.whatever inch touchscreen display, wicked fast GPU, capacitive stylus, GPS, 4G, NFC, upgradable OS, multi-tasking and a battery big enough to start your car.

A lot of people I know just need a phone that looks cute and works.

Nice to some variety in phones being offered. touch screen phones are so limiting. They are impossible to multitask safely with. This is a product that I will be able to use with one hand and one eye and half a brain.
