Landfill Fodder

This is possibly one of the worst smartphones AT&T has carried that wasn't a WinMo equipped HTC.

This was touched on in the review, but app performance is nothing short of a joke. Of course, since Android app development is already atrocious when it comes to things such as resolution independence and sliding canvases, this just exacerbates them.

I hate to say it to beat a dead horse (I wouldn't have to say it if more dead horses weren't being released), but here you have a perfect example as to why Android just doesn't work as an 'open' platform- there's no moderation (Android 1.5?), there's no reintroduction of individual contributions (I guess it'd just be everyone copying HTC) , and the only OS-wide changes we're seeing from the 'community' is AT&T (or Verizon) effing up what Dell couldn't.

Long story short, I don't know why anyone would buy this.
