    "...so this is basically just another Android handset, albeit a really good one."

    Ouch. This guy isn't sugar coating the truth one bit here.

    Let's see now. Here are just some of the reasons that it is a big NO for me:

    • There's only one rate plan: $39.99 Even More + Text + Web for $79.99 total
    • Existing customers cannot keep their plan if they want a subsidized phone; they have to change to the one plan, and this only applies to accounts with one single line
    • If that doesn't fly with you, you have to buy the $530 unlocked version—this actually might save you money over two years if you already have a cheap plan
    Family plans, Flexpay, SmartAccess and KidConnect subscribers must buy the phone unlocked and unsubsidized for $530 :eek:

    Oh, and did I mention, it's T-Mobile. The biggest reason for a big NO for me.

    It's really NOT that good of a phone, a little better processor, and you can use FM radio with it. Other then that it's just like a droid. Even though HTC makes it, it also will NOT come with senseUI. People in the US seem to think that subsidized phones are much cheaper then those that are not. What many don't realize is that they charge you monthly to recoupe the costs of the phone. They most likely make more off you then unsubsidized phones. The only plus in the US with this phone (unsubsidized) will be the option to take it to another network then t-mob, some will like, and some will not.

    1) $530 no way in hell.

    2) T-Mobile not a chance.

    3) No physical Keyboard no chance.

    I'm happy with my Droid and Verizon.

    I'd have to think that there is some inaccuracy to the plan information in this article. It seems that they would have a very hard time selling the phone with these restrictions.

    And I'm not planning to switch. I just see people here talking about Nexus so I passed the article along. :)
