Is it just me that is sad that none of the new S60 handsets are subsidized by any carriers? I dont know if I'd be getting one if it was available on Tmobile or Sprint, which are the two carriers I have phones thru. But I'd really consider it. I know it can be used on Tmobile being its an unlocked GSM phone. But I already have a G1 and I cant see that I'd want to drop full price on a N97 and throw aside my G1. But I'm up for a new handset on Sprint, and would really consider getting a N97 if Sprint had a CDMA one. But I guess I'm just rambling that in a perfect world an awesome phone like this would get some love by a carrier.

I think I rather pay full price for one because by signing the contract means you paid too much for real. Besides I rather have Palm Pre on Sprint than the N97.

No, Sprint hasn't carried them cuz they run that lame CDMA network that doesn't let you browse the web and take a call(via Bluetooth of course) at the same time. So much for the Pre being a web connected device huh? Ohh, and just wait until you see a random person in public with the GSM version of the Pre! Just so you know I have nothing against the Palm Pre.
