V635..why the memory card?
Also, it only has 5 MB of internal memory, which is next to nothing for a megapixel phone.
I think it might do MP3, too, but...
The specifics said that the V635 is going to have EDGE, so I am assuming that it is a Cingular phone.
i930? More info?
Nice coverage by the way. I'm always reloading here and engadget for updates on CES. It's like I'm there!
