Well that's innovative. NOT. No wonder Apple is picking up Android's market share. lol

yeah between the low end devices and also when i know someone that goes from android to apple i wonder why and they hated the UI basically. yeah i'm in college so not everyone can "easily" navigate around for instance with the droid x2. they like apple for its simplicity. although i tell them to hold off and get a phone with ICS, or htc sense, or touchwiz and you will like it a lot more.....but no one listens to me. ha.
Idk if i had to choice between this phone or my eris i'm pretty sure i would stick with my eris (Personal opinion).

At least people have options. Not everyone can afford a $200-$300 smartphone.

The hell are both of you talking about? The Eris? You're talking about a phone you already used for lord knows how long versus something you haven't ever used...how is that decision not biased? And c.hack shut up you make pointless comments just because your ailment prevents you from speaking intelligently about anything that isn't apple.
This is a mid ranged phone, running on gingerbread 4" screen, dual cameras. The price tag might be a bit high for my understanding as it's half the ram and single core sub 1Ghz processor. So unless this phone runs flawlessly I can't stomach the $400 tag, should be $300 flat at the most. But an Eris, lol yea sure buddy. How old is that Eris? I'm amazed that it still works.

You can get the Pantech Breakout (on the Verizon network) for $300 off contract. Using that as a benchmark, I am not so sure the Motoluxe is worth an extra $100 more.

Verizon Wireless has the Pantech Breakout for $360 for month to month on its online store.
The device goes for $300 at a Fry's Electronics store near where I live.
The current market is $300 to $360 for that phone.
