over in the "Review: HTC SMT-5800" discussion:

No voice command on this smartphone

This phone has voice tagging
no voice command.
Tagging meaning you have to go in and record your own voice tag for every single contact you have.
which stinks.
They shouldnt have released this phone without it.
My V710 from 2004 and my Motorola Q from 2006
both have VoiceSignal, which is awesome.
If the HTC SMT5800 had it I would have kept it.
But instead I returned it and got the Q9M.
Which has an even newer version of VoiceSignal.

Also the 5800 has small buttons, in bad placing.
and the soft buttons shuold be at the bottom corners of the screen,like every other smartphone out there. Instead they put them down on the keypad.

Sprint LG Rumor

Wow, Im looking forward to this. I plan to get it for my birthday. I was wondering if anyone had it yet? I was just wondering if you could post anything that is extra nice about the phone. And also, are you guys at going to do a reveiw on the phone? But it does look like a solid texting phone and thats why I look forward to getting it.

CTIA came late this year

remember, CTIA came so late this year that carriers could really announce any of their holiday hotness. they wanted to tease you back in the beginning of october, not at that end of it. so it's true, there weren't really any jaw dropping phones announced here, but there have already been some, and were told that there will be some more later in the holiday season and then through CES in January.

maybe next year

Maybe next year we can hope to see some phones that make us want spend money.

i would love to see some hones that are distinguished from the pack, phones that have innovative and worthwhile features.
