Sprint you just keep going dont you

This phone looks like the real deal. Looks nice, nice specs. Lets just hope for a solid build on hardware so that it wont have any recalls.

5MP camera Shocked Very Happy

wifi- Eh? really shouldn't need it with Rev-A unless you live in the boonies.
Amen Brother!!

Onboard memory

I heard a rumor that it had a large onboard memory. I guess we'll find out shortly. I wish the Hero had it's camera ability..this makes my choice a bit more difficult.
84 MB of on-board memory.

Sprint's last breath...

Well at least they want to go out with a bang I suppose. But come on, you think people will pay $250 plus extra for a stupid microSD card when they can get an iPhone 3GS with 16gb bullt in memory for $50 less? Give me a break.
Considering that Sprint's data plans are considerably cheaper, I'd say yes.
Its called choice. Why do you people always think that someone wants a Iphone. It could be the best phone in the world but still everyone does not want one or do they want to be on At&t. Imagine a world where everyone has a Iphone, it would suck!
Pay $50 upfront for a phone or pay $50 more a month with AT&T, let's do the math:

Sprint $50 x 1 = $50
AT&T $50 x 24 (2 year contract) = $1200
...
Sounds like another Sprint hater.

Seems decent

Good multimedia/camera abilities; wont compete with the Pre or Hero but for a user-friendly device it is a great option! Smile
I think it wont compete as far as specs but sales it will be close if not surpass those phones just because it looks nice and it will be release in october and about the time the holidays roll around it will still be new and people love new.
