    I think typically the first subsidized price of a phone is right around 2/5 the retail price, so my guess would be $499-549 range.

    Not sure about free hotspot, but the frign wiimote doesn't work so no big screen gaming just like the frign Vibrant!! man this sucks, as it was going to be the perfect phone finally.....



    Actually someone pointed out that the Optimus 2X and the T-Mobile version are different. Same guts(minus the radio) but the T-Mobile version run stock Android and not the LG interface. And since all the wiimote issues are based on the Euro version with LG's interface, I'm hoping that the T-Mobile version will work. So I'm keeping a positive note that the T-Mobile variant might play nicely with the Wiimote :)

    I just came from T-Mobile. They told me 4/20 is the launch date for the new Sidekick, not the G2X.
