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.
