I think the problem for Sprint is two fold.

1.) Longevity

This device will serve a very small mobile user segment in my opinion. Dual screens sounds cool but for now its merely a feature. I think customer have spoken already that they don't want tricky phones. They don't seem to sell well. I don't feel this device will last long.

2.) Mixed Messages

Sprint is heavily touting its Wimax as next big thing yet they are releasing Flagship phones that run on 3G? I know some of you will say Verizon just released an IPhone that runs on 3G but the IPhone is a proven flagship phone unlike todays announcement.

So in conclusion,

Is the device cool? Yes.

Will people buy it? Sure they will.

Will it be an industry game charger? I do not see this happening.
