Thinking outside of the box is one thing.

Producing a great product is something else entirely.

Putting a small battery in a multi-screen phone with a 1GHZ single-core processor sounds like a terrible idea.

And there is no "multi-tasking" save for the 5 or 6 apps created specifically to take advantage of the dual-screens.

And honestly, having a Dual-screen is not an original idea. TONS of phones have dual screens. You don't have to look further than the ENV touch to get your hands on one. In fact, most flip phones have dual screens.

The only difference with this phone is the direction the screens face and the Operating system it runs on.

If I were you, I'd wait it out a few weeks and read the reviews before running ou...

in other words, it's COMPLETELY different from any phone that's been released before. kind of a goofy runaround way of saying so, but i agree.

to the OP: If you MUST have this pho...

I am the avdvocate for this phone and I am happy to say that I am very pleased with how well it does work the battery is phenomenal it works very well. it has lasted a lease 2 days for me. by the way it comes with an additional battery that has a power box that can be used with any phone as an outside power supply. I downloaded a few apps and they do work in tablet mode very well. Using email the phone is the best because of the two screens. Its like I'm on my home computer. 1 side has the list of emails, while the other screen has the open email. Having the ability to have two browser pages opened at the same time is more useful than I thought. There is little to no lag as I was expecting. But everyone who has got bad things to sassy about ...

It will be the first smartphone that will have dual screens, however.

Yes, there have been many phones that have used dual screens in the past, but I think with the dual screen feature being on a smartphone, it may set a precedent for more dual screen smartphones in the future.

I do agree that one should wait a few weeks and see what the review on the phone would be (that's with any phone though).

This phone's two screen together have about an inch more of screen than an Evo turned sideways. Multi-tasking is awkward at best. I hope there isn't a flood of early adopters for this device because right now its lookin like a stinker.

To its credit, the built-in keyboard should be ok even for the fattest of fingers
