Is that a stylus in the back? How quaint, reminds me of 1999.

Looks like a BlackBerry knockoff.

looks like a slick phone...its cool that it has an AMOLED display, but 2.8 inches is kinda lacking. Ram looks good, but what about processor speed? 3.1 mp camera is cool, more than anyone would probably need on a phone, but it is a lot less than what comes on more inexpensive smart phones of today (5 is becoming a new standard it seems) Its nice they included a stylus, but from what i see it looks like it will not be used much since the OS theme looks to take advantage of the Samsung Omnia style track pad. lets see how this holds up for ATT, so far, i cant justify the $230 price tag

it's a candy bar qwerty, I think 2.8" is decent

HP hasn't made cell phones in awhile. We'll see how this one turns out. Looks promising though.

HP actually has made smart phones recently. The last one released was the 910c which came out last July in the U.S. (the 510 came out, I believe, 2 years prior to the 910c). I have that phone and actually love it. The Glisten (ewww, I really hate that name; should have stuck with Obsidian) has me VERY excited. I'll be getting it to replace the 910c.

Why would anyone buy this. It has no good features... No reason to shell out $30 extra a month for this P.O.S.
