£56 a month contract. How silly.

I'm really thinking there's been an error with that. You get contracts for the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S3 for under £45. No way anyone would pay 56 for that.

Verizon is yet again dropping the ball on Windows Phone... This would be a great phone to have on Verizon.

HTC has already stated it will be on Verizon.
