    My cousin wants this phone. It has a tiny low res screen, intuitive keyboard and 700MHz OMAP processor. Should be fast but should be crappy (due to small screen). Anybody considering this phone?

    More low end product. Why can't they give us more higher end Android devices? The one high end one, the Captivate, is still in the debug phase, particularly for GPS.

    Sigh...

    But it will probably sell and be successful to a certain, not techy market looking for a "smartphone". Not all phones have to be high end like we may want.

    I absolutely agree. But only 1 high end phone is annoying. If the GPS doesn't get fixed on the Captivate in the timeline they say, I may have to give up and switch carriers.

    The one "high end" phone they came out with is from a company with a track record of no updates, they should at least roll out an htc phone they will let htc update :/

    LOL whether it is 5 phones by 1H 2010 or a FlipOut by the weekend, AT&T keeps failing.

    Did AT&T promise a Flipout by the weekend? I thought it was just heard in the blogs, etc.

    I"m not necessarily interested in defending AT&T and their selections, but then if they didn't announce it, then its not their failure.

    But then if they did, I guess so.

    My bad. Supposedly, AT&T sent FlipOut materials to their stores to train employees on it the weekend before it was rumored to release. No official word from AT&T.

    I take it back. Semi-fail.

    Well the Xperia is also a high end device
    i'd consider it more high end vs the aria & backflip phones

    The Captivate(which i own needs debugging as someone said)
    and the bad in the xperia is that it needs a software upgrade

    I think the Flipout is geared more towards the "younger generation" and those who want to get into Android for the first time - it's seriously unfortunate that At&t hasn't stepped up their game and brought more high end android devices to the table.
