This is comparable to...

...the Sony Ericsson Z500. It's almost uncanny how similar the two phones are. Both are clamshells with dual color displays, EDGE, PTT, streaming video playback, VGA camera with video capture, speakerphone, internal antennas...

I think it's great, and they'll both be popular phones. But it's unusual to see two phones so similar coming out around the same time like this. I think perhaps we're finally getting to the point where U.S. GSM carriers have enough sway that they can dictate the phones they want, and the big makers are listening.

Just an observation...

PS: Look for an LG slider phone soon that also has pretty much this same feature set. Wink
