@DamnofThursday....Yea because high schoolers and parents have $300 to blow on cell phones. Fail!! This phone is the most powerful Android phone announced to release this year.
Wow I'm not sure were I went wrong with what I said but that's NO WHERE NEAR WHAT I MEANT. Totally agreed, there's a ton of posts where I say that this is a great phone and that I'm really digging it (and still probably buy it) BUT - and stay with me here - KEYBOARD.
It's all demographics. I can take my G1 to a group of teens and they all say the same thing - too bulky, too wide, i don't like that keyboard, the onscreen is not responsive, i can't play games, etc. etc. However, with the CliqXT, I hear - sweet phone, awesome text, fast messaging, hey can I play this game, etc. etc. Parents nowadays are dropping $300 bucks or more a year on video game consoles, not counting the actual games themselves. This is just an extension of that mentality.
We've just got to accept that one fact - this is the demographic, and TMO is doing an awesome job playing up to it. I'm hoping for a keyboard, but after some sprint fact-finding I'm probably going to grin & bear the Galax S sans keyboard. But then again, I use it for more than games I use it for - and again stay with me - WORK.
I hope this helps clear up the issue for anyone still confused and again, I don't think I purposely meant to bash the GS but to say that parents and teens won't buy it b/c of the price tag is dead wrong. There's people already lining up to buy this and....they're older teens!
