A candybar android phone! Great..

it might survive shaking..
it might survive water..
it might survive dropping..
it might survive dust..

But it sure cannot survive a day! without charging.

So no thanks.

Kinda cool... maybe not the best hardware... Wish I could try it out, but I live in Europe, and here we apparently don't like hardware keyboards, and we like to pay higher prices (tax excluded), even for devices made in asia.

Another impractical keyboard for anyone with hands larger than a 5yr old.
Couldnt use it even if it was completely free.
When oh when will handset makers and carriers actually ASK the customer what are his needs?
ill believe it when I see it.
Once upon a time you could get a handset that met a busness mans needs, that was 11 yrs ago with the Nokia 9210i. still making $100. on ebay.
A proper businessman's handset.
Shame on you AT&T, and all the current hand set makers.
