So, while your significant other is purchasing clothes and the like on the busiest shopping day of the year, you can be resting on the bench outside of the store, enjoying your new toy!

do they honestly think that the average consumer is going to have 799 dollars laying around??

Compared to the $949 price on expansys-usa.com, $799 is a "relatively" good price (i.e. a savings of $150). I get your point though.... $799 is still high, but it's a nonsubsidized price. If you were to buy the Blackberry Storm, Touch Pro, or iPhone without a carrier contract, you'd be paying close to that price too.

799.99, take it or leave it. if it doesnt sell its on them to do whatever they want with the price. theres a lot of competition out there. lots of good phone, and when the holiday season comes around expect even more phones. that phones sounds pretty cool, so if its 799.99, who the hell cares!!!!

799 for a phone that in reviews says the so called panel interface is laggy forget it

Not only is the panel laggy the camera is as well. Three second shutter response time....that won't work. I'll wait for the first firmware update and a price reduction. In fairness, the HTC Diamond had the same initial issues but they got it straightened out and its pretty good device for in the $550 range unlocked.

why does $7.99 confuse you people, ofcourse it is that expensive, its a brand new touch screen phone, with a qwerty keypad, a 3.2 megapixel camera. WITHOUT a contract, if it was carrier available, it would be cheaper.
