I was thinking the same thing. But then again, no high speed data, on the cellular side.

Guys, the operating system and specs are literally right under the photo of the phone.

It is running a special fork of the Android OS.

HOWEVER, it is not an Android platform phone. It is not compatible with any third-party Android software. It is not a smartphone.

It runs only J2ME third-party software, just like any featur...

Battery Life/SB time

Talk: 4.1 hours max. (245 minutes)
Standby: 120 hours max. (5 days)

R they serious? This phone is a msg device and should have amazing Talk/SB time.

These numbers make you feel like it's 1998 and the only droid you knew were the ones on SW.
It's iDEN. That's why.
