How about full-disclosure?

Your first review of this device wasn't much more than a complete trainwreck.

You complained about how terrible the touch display was, yet none of you were ever willing to admit that you were in fact using a pre-production device and never calibrated the display? As such, your findings were laughable at best, delusional at worst. There was zero reasoning given why your findings were completely disjoint from virtually ALL OTHER reviews at the time.

And here we are, almost a year later, and you are still peddling the same nonsense about the first Instinct having a "poor touchscreen". It shouldn't really come as a suprise, you also promised you'd retest a Glyde after it came out to see if you had a bad unit - never did.

So how about ...

No, I stand by our original review of the Instinct.

It definitely had a resistive touch screen. It may have had three capacitive touch keys below it, but the touch screen part was resistive. Some touch displays are much better than others, regardless of technology type. The Instinct's was relatively terrible.

More than one of us tested it, and we both reached the same conclusions. Sprint supplied the unit, and explicitly told us it was final. If it were pre-porduction, it would certainly be in their best interest to tell us that, but they told us it was final.
