Looks like a cheaper Palm Pre? What! The Pre is one of the cheapest smart phones right now on verizon. How much cheaper could you get? Plus who would want an android phone with a screen smaller than 3 inches? Whats the point of even having a smart phone then when its crippled by the screen size. And a $100 phone isn't much when that's close to how much your monthly bill will be anyways so i don't quite understand the point of buyin a cheap smart phone when the monthly bill will be the same no matter what smart phone you have.

Because people are idiots and fail to take a look at the TCO rather then just the upfront cost. And this phone looks like an after thought that would just drive more calls in for verizon and drain Motorolas reputation once again. You can't get a benz for the price of a hyundai.

Well the LG Ally is already priced at $50 which is cheap for an android device runnin 2.1 but VZW always likes to have options for the customer. Lets face it, no matter how cool the phones get theres always that crowd that doesnt want cutting edge they just want entry level. Not sure what the quality will be but seems like a nice option for someone (not me). But i love how PA tries to make it seem like $200 for one of the latest smartphones is such a high dollar. Thats been the trend for awhile now with the higher end smartphones...
