If I had the money to throw around, and they were available for the USA right now, I would gladly get one just on principle, even if it weren't going to be my main phone. But as neither of the above conditions are met, I'm going to wait and see and hope they are successful.


i was born in ZAIRE now is DRC when i was 7 civil war strike and left. DRC it's not conflict-free http://bloodinthemobile.org/

Welcome to TMO, where facts like this don't matter, and anything is worse than Maemo.

Thank you for tha post. I was gonna say something about that comment regarding Android and open source-ness. Decided not to just for sheer time constraints and not having the motivation to bother.

Oh please. You'll find random dogmatic stances like that, with hypocrisy added to taste, everywhere.

They might call it "fair", but it is still an Android phone. "Fair" cannot justify the €310 price tag. Not to mention that the b100dy specs pages flip so fast that I had to flip each of them back 2 to 3 times to finish reading it.

I think that they justified price tag by high cost of ensuring "fair" (conflict free) resources used and small production scale, just like Neo900 justified even higher price tag by even smaller production scale, before tha latter flopped.

Now, users are rather used (sic) to much lower prices, from companies that doesn't care much from supply chain, and order hundred of thousands devices from factories braking workers right in totally undemocratic country (China).

Now, I don't try to justify (or claim unjust) their price tag - I simply have no idea how much it "should" cost. But I suspect much more than "unfair" device from big manufacturer, of comparable specs. Twice as much seems probable.
