Recommended Posts

Saw this over on Phonemag...

A company is offering a touch-screen Tri-Band smartphone running Windows Mobile 6, which you can customize (so it's built for you with different hardware) for under $150!

Check it out:

Customizations available:

Customizations like: GPS, 4 Stereo Speakers, Water Resistant, TV/FM receiver? Huh!

I kind of wish I was not locked into a contract with Verizon now...

Looks like one of those Chinese cloners... I'd be wary of giving them any of my personal information (CC/Address...)

OK... hmmm after looking around a bit more - it seems like there is something fishy here:

Those guys say it runs Symbian with MS logos on it... bad stuff.

Sorry everyone, got overly excited I guess. :( Time will tell.

It might not be a scam. Adding features is pretty expensive, so when you add features to compare it to other phones, its within that range.

We get these phones in India, they aint a scam but lemme tell you these dont last for long , max 3 months.

The Operating system aint windows or Symbian its some crappy chinese Custom OS but hell, the speakers are damn loud !!

for eg: lookey here 89775820_o.jpg

this looks like symbian but it aint , its some cheap chineese knock off, alos look at the bottom of the screen for similar marking on the screen

People, People the wait is almost over for the OpenMoko Phone. Freerunner. STOP and check it out!

Well, hmmm that does look cool but - I am almost certain it will not do ActiveSync and therefore - it's a doorstop for what I need.
