It's not a 3G phone yet it costs $200 with 2-yr contract? It's more like a $99 phone to me. Damn Motorola! Not to mention just a newbie Android 1.5 and puny 3.1"....

If you know phones, anytime a phone is made durable the up the price on it.

I also think this should be a $100. The Cliq XT I bought was $129 at the time and that seems like a ok price. Being the i1 is almost the same phone hardware wise as the Cliq XT I think it's a good comparable. The fact that iden is so much slower does seem like a ding against it. But iden phones are always expensive. Honestly thinking about it...I'm a construction worker. I'd probably pay $70 more for the ruggedness. But the iden slowness is a BIG turn off.

the real big deal is it has android 1.5 loaded so you are not able to download apps from market or update the ones pre-loaded. Basically I've got a $200 paper weight now. Thanks Souther Linc
