I think it's a clever way to approach the battery life problem. The "battery hat" is also a leather protective case. So while you are not on the phone, or listening to music, the phone is gonna be in the case anyway. When someone calls, take it out... (continues)
I want to say i like the idea, but why? what the heck is the point of having 2 screens? why couldnt it all be one one side?

compared to the chocolate which i have actually played with both of them they really have no difference besides the slider portion of the phone. you can multi task with both of them, they both has sd card slots, and they both have great sound quality.... (continues)
I have heard of freezing issues on the chocolate....I have a Sanyo M1 and it's a great mp3 player phone! Only 2 drawbacks are camera lense location and no expandable memory, although 1g built in is plenty for me.
I've got the Sanyo M1, and I would have to say its the best mp3/phone because it has easy to use controls, adequate memory, great sound quality and its easy to share unlicensed music via bluetooth or usb cable.
that is a really narrow minded way to look at this, it looks like a really ground breaking phone, and i am really looking forward to at least trying it out before i make snap judgments, it seem to be getting pretty good reviews to.
I just took the Samsung UpStage for a spin. It's actually pretty cool. I didn't think that it was a good idea to create a double sided phone/mp3 player at first, but it really rocked my world. It runs really smoothly and is designed nicely.
