I'm in Thailand right now and was just looking at the variety of smart phones in MBK in Bangkok. I inquired and spoke with the Android dealers (I can speak Thai). Here's the summary of handsets: 1) HTC Hero 22,900 Baht, or $695 2) HTC Magin 17,900 Baht, or $544 3) HTC Tattoo 13,900 Baht, or $422 EDIT: These are the "asking" prices. Everything here is negotiable and varies among dealers when you're ready to buy. Note: Currency conversion assumes 32.94 Baht/$ The handsets are expensive, but you don't have a monthly invoice, contracts, or detailed regulatory billing statements. Everything is prepaid, minutes, data, etc. In fact, 7-Eleven is the most common place I replenish my dwindling minutes here. I have the brochure of the HTC/Android/Google phones, but I'm going to omit posting the specs here other than to say they're all GSM. I also told that HTC is the only Android handset maker at the moment here, but more are coming in the future. It's here, but expensive. They told me they very much preferred to use data on a WiFi network (free data if WiFi connected and active). EDIT: I will post the spec here shortly. I'm on vacation and this will involve coping the data off the brochure. I will scan the brochure eventually and post as well. .
