Blackberry Flip? Lotus, and one click


Sep 11, 2008, 11:18 AM
why a flip blackberry? looks okay but do you really want to have to worry about hardware, software, and breaking it in half?

lotus? fashion statement, i dont think so. looks like the creators of the Scion xB got ahold of blitz and thought it needed a little bit of tweaking... still have no idea which pocket it would go...

one click? as long as they dont start restricting the internet and downloads like verizon its all good. looks like a good way to simplify the interfaces. now if only all manufaturers could agree on a charger design.

Flip Blackberry? Because BB has been targeting normal consumers instead of business professionals. Like the pearl, tbey're aiming at the young professionals and the teens that beg mommy and daddy to get them what everyone else is getting

Lotus? A tween Phone. You will see so many 12-17 year olds rocking out this phone it will be sick. At least thats what LG wants. It's an alternative to the rumor, and i'm banking on the pictures being a bit deceiving about its hideious size.

One Click? Im hoping this is great. Really am, because i am so sick of all these ugly UI's and this actually looks fresh and user friendly. Props to sprint if this works out.

Wow! Debby Downer, what a negative thread for someone who has never touch any of these products! Sad

It cracks me up how people who have never held a product, will go and get all negative about them.

"Waaaaaaaa, I love my iPhone so much that after I have sex with it, I'm going to jump on Phonescoop and rip on everything else!" Yeah, that's you.

You should really take your own advice. Wink

im not here to argue back and forth about these phones. what i've stated is my personal opinion and someone flamed me for it. I, in turn reacted. Im not here to argue with anyone, and just posting what you did above is provocation for me to react, which i will not.

It's just that you are knocking on a product that is not even out yet. Hold your opinion until you actually see and feel the product. When I first saw the LG, I thought it was an ugly phone, but then when I actually held it and gave it a try, I really liked it.

All I'm saying is don't jump to conclusions about how flawed and terrible a handset is before it launches. Then that makes you look like the idiot for not even giving anything a chance. So I flame you for that. Good day.

I held the Purple lotus in my hand at a Sprint NDC Kick off seminar. It's huge for not being a smart phone. Open it's as big as a Blackberry Curve. The screen is quite large. Definately a phone for tweens and fashionistas. I hated it and I'm a woman. While I'm sure they will blow out the door for the younger set, the price point is going to gouge Mommy and Daddy's pocket book for about 149.99 with a 2 yr contract and a $50 dollar rebate if the word on Sprint's website is correct.
It has it's market... rich kids with parents that spend way too much on something the kid is going to break and want a replacement. I've seen it...dealt with it... moved on.

Didn't see the BlackBerry flip... looks interesting tho
