    I feel the best phone money can buy right now is S8500 wasve for 19000 u get 3G open market OS and awsome clarity and everything it should have the greatest phone ever built.

  • MaNoJ July 9, 2010 9:24 am

    Too costly.
    better to buy a Nokia E72, which is cheaper, has 3G for fast internet, access all your social sites easily, can be used with all GSM operator. :) :)
    Who will go for it only for android.
    It will available soon in other cheaper smartphone.
    If I use CDMA, I go for Samsung Corby speed.
    But if you are already using R-CDMA and want to use android, than there is no choice except Galaxy.
