Part of the benefits of buying an unlocked phone (like this) is that you will not be forced into a new contract. I still use my $15/month "data unlimited" data plan that I signed up for years ago along with a "feature phone", but currently use with a Nokia N8. Over a standard 2-year contract term, that adds up to savings of $360 (when compared to a $30/month 3 gig smartphone data plan). The one caveat is that if you buy an unlocked LTE phone (such as the Sony Xperia Ion, LT28i), there is no telling yet what AT&T does once you put this on their network. Their own 4G phones (such as the same phone with branding, LT28at) require specific "4G Smartphone Data Plans". Even though the price for those plans are equivalent to standard (3G) smartphoen data plans, they seem to make this distinction for 4G devices.

This will surely be for those photo taking enthusiasts seeing how it's running Symbian. Not sure who still wants that garbage, so it's going to be a tough sell for everyone else with all of the other great options on the market.

You can just get a good DSLR, which is much better, for the same price. The camera that Phonearena compared this to isnt as DSLR, its just a standard digital camera. This phone replaces the standard digital camera, but not a DSLR, not even close.
