It does indeed loke a bit like the iPod Touch, which is exactly why I like this phones design! Would be good to know if the back is made of metal or just of some look alike plastic. If the former is the case, I'm a potential buyer!
P.S.: You can't compare every phone around $300 with the Nexus 4. Alot of people want a more compact device (including me), it's not always about the biggest and most powerful for the money. Also the street price of this phone is most likely going to be much lower than $300.

Nope...sorry...its just above entry level....benchmark it against the Nokia Lumia 620....similar specs....same crappy battery and android is a thirstier platform than windows...

I fail to understand how manufacturers hope to take market share from the opposition....by putting out less attractive products from those they are competing against.

I'm not an Apple Ultimate Fan (I still use 4S 'coz I hate 5 and Tim Cook) -- And also, I have both Symbian (PV808) and Android (Nexus 4) phones too, but this time I just got to say this:

That looks like an iPhone 5-ish thingy. O_O

$315 is NOT good price, not for those specs. I just think this is a ploy to hike the prices of the idol line when it's finally released.

unforgiving pricing,only google should sell android devices and the OEMs should fire their R&D and marketing departments and use only their facilities to make profits

Low price at a fair quality and good performance. I cant say anything bad about the brand considering the price. Only.low.popularity.

Better to stick with the new acer liquid (though I wouldn't call it new)
