- Really? $700? On a phone with these specs? I'd expect that from a 4G something or other, but not even the BB Torch started at that and surely you think BB and AT&T would want to hit up those business types for all their worth.
I'm hoping that since this isn't exactly breakneck in terms of specs a price point of $399. Maybe $499. Who knows though.09-10-2010 02:16 AM
