    From slashgear:

    "If you’re interested in pre-ordering the device, you can head over to their site and do the deed right now. But, you better be ready to drop anywhere between $12,800 and $49,500 for this thing"

    I thought the Droid Charge was overpriced!

    ....DROOOL!.... :shocked: This is like something you'd expect to see Bruce Wayne or James Bond rockin'! Not only insanely awesome hardware specs but they don't stiff you on internal technical specs either!

    that phone was looking really promising till i saw it was powered by android. Android is the trailer park of smart phone operating systems. Its duct taped together just enough to work but nothing more then that.

    Quite possibly the biggest waste of my time ever. Even more of a waste than when I looked at an iPhone for about 30 seconds.
