Very disappointed

This review is disappointing.

The W760a is one the of best media phones (non-PDA) phones out for any carrier right now. It's incredibly sturdy, and these keys are NOT hard to find or press.

We have sold plenty of these phones out of our store and aside from the V9x, I would recommend it for everyone wanting something less than a PDA.

I don't understand this "Stephen Wolpin's" incessant use of the word "gimmick" in this review. Like seriously, wtf is a gimmick on this phone? It all performs fine.

For anyone not too sure, here is a definition of the word gimmick:

Speakers look stereo

From my time on the w760 i believe the speakers are stereo, compared to the w580. There are 2 holes for them in the front, compared to the one on the w580. Since they're not spaced far apart, it doesn't particuarly sound distinctly stereo unless you compare i believe.
