Why?

I'd say this actually looks far more durable than most phones. A solid block with almost no buttons (fewer moving parts)? Sounds solid to me, in more ways than one.

The touchscreen isn't an issue, because it's capacitative. The cool thing about that technology is that it can be located below the surface and sense through several layers, so the whole face can be thick, super-hard polycarbonate, not the soft membrane layer on most PDA-phones today.

I wouldn't think either of those would be an issue, since it's solid-state. Even standard resistive touch-screens like on today's PDA-phones seem to hold up pretty well to repeated use. This is far more durable than those, so I don't see how it would be any kind of major issue.

That's true. And I see these phones holding up better in the hands of more responsible users (and at current prices, it's only older users who'll be able to afford them).

Don't worry about quality MuchDrama, I'm sure by next year, like fashion, this phone will be passe and the fashionista will have moved on to the Samsung Valentino phone or Motorola Armani Phone. Wink
