Interesting to see that, especially since the recent news of Samsung not being able to keep up production of AMOLED displays. There was also those complaints about AMOLED using a pentile matrix and not every pixel was RGB or something (dont remember exactly). I wonder how this SLCD.Apparently it's also going to use a Sony Super LCD, rather than an AMOLED display. While I don't know much about the "Super LCD" it should end up looking better than a traditional AMOLED display in direct sunlight.
simply for people who are not eligible for a subsidy, do not want to commit 3 years or who may want to purchase it to use on another carrier. like someone else mentioned the Nexus One was 529 usd and also had shipping & some duty to pay on top of that as well. 449 for a high end android phone is just great to see.@profets
What's the appeal of the no-contract price? Since the carriers don't seem to give you a better price if you bring your own phone, why not take advantage of the subsidy? Sure you're locked in for three years, but realistically, if you're saving $300-400 off a phone, would it be economical to switch anyhow?
