There are a lot of videos of it on youtube already. Its been confirmed that it only runs at 600mhz. Good things are the 3.5mm headphone jack, proximity sensor, led notification light and gpu. Definitely a good entry level phone, but not enough for me to get one. I don't think this one will have the support of the original. The Ascend came at a perfect moment in time for what it was, but I think people have moved on to bigger and better things and this is just not enough of an upgrade. I also don't think any devs will bother latching on to this phone to develop for. There are too many similar devices on the market now that I don't see the point. People need to realize how fortunate the Ascend community is that Isaac picked this phone up. Is there another Isaacj87 out there for the Ascend 2? You never know, but I wouldn't count on it.
