Good deal but I walked pass a Radioshack yesterday and they are still advertising the 100 dollar off Verizon smartphone deal.

Whens the Vigor coming out? Either HTC is keeping it a secret or its coming later

I really like this handset. For this price getting lte and a keyboard is really cool. If the battery life is good it should be a major hit.

Only for the past few months. Smart move as business folks move away from company-issued Blackberries and start using their own smartphones. And while it's not specced for power users, the Stratosphere is probably the best example of a business-ready Android.
