Woot member mrobinsn has used this phone and has mixed things to say about it.

Woot staffer BigD answers some questions (will it work in Europe? can the OS replace your Palm Pilot?) and discusses the fold-out keypad.

A WOOT DILEMMA ™ - A B.O.C… is posted up and you just found out that your aging crippled grandmother’s car broke down, it’s 20 degrees out and she is on the side of the road alone and waiting for you to come pick her up.

WHAT DO YOU DO?? (yeah, I know… what is she doing out that late anyway [;)] )

Whiner’s List

This list is dedicated to those perveyors of perfect prose, the perpetually precise penners of perfunctory penmanship, and possibly the past, present and pluperfect potentates of panache, pulsating with panoramic and perapatetic
parity for the perpetual word, punishing the parodies of personhood who push their proterozoic ponderings on the propagable proletariat, those protectors of the prosaic, the propitious proponents of proper propagable propounds, those prominent prolocutors of Promethean proofs, I give you: Pooflady, MSwriter and the woot blurb writers!

Upon the advice of my attorney-in-fact, I would like to preface tonight’s list with the disclaimer that this is my idea of entertainment. No illiterates were harmed in the compilation of this list. Illiterates are not stupid: they are illiterate. No one’s behavior is expected to change from the posting of these names. No harm is intended with the publishing of these posts. All posts are quoted exactly, some in context; and some out of context.

The following protagonists have been selected based upon their whining abilities and lack of proficiency in following spelling, grammar and punctuation rules (or because they think I’m picking on them):

tonyrward - 1 (would rather rely on his “Treo Better”. Haven’t heard of that one.)
yangoss - 1 (Says woot is “too rich for my bl00d night”. Probably has to go do his punctuation homework.)
gorcorps - 1 (says he has a “good lookin butI”, pronounced “but eye”. We’ll take your word for it, gor.)
Narnian - 1 (wants us to “to$$$ for me.” Who wants to toss for Nar? Ok, you win!)
kenntina - 1 (claims “My mother has onevery”. You’re lucky to be born, kenn!)
edncassie - 1 ( “I’ve got Sprint it won’t work :(” sorry to hear 'bout that. Could viagra help? )
robul - 1 (“this will be dleted…”, starting with the “e”, apparently)
mainal50 - 1 (claims “i GET DROPPED calls ALOT LAtely”. Have you confused your “caps locked” key with your space bar?)
ewaleson - 1 (“Well what kind of phoen do you have I have a nokia the soap bar one and its reception is awesome. My sister has a motorola and it sucks and my dad has an lg and it also sucks. In both caes when all three phones are in one car mine will have 5 bars and they will have 2.” Got the runs?)
aoviss - 1 (“wheres the picture of the other part of this bag-phone?” In the excessive pronouns and prepositions lost and found?)
KevOKC - 1( " you negitive nellies…Stop gripping “. Wonder what they’re gripping?)
brianm96 - 1 (“your somewhat mistaken” Your, you’re, y’oar, yer, what’s the diff?)
uber0 - 1 (“And it seems pretty big too.” Starting a superlative with a conjunction [u}would[/u] make sense if your name was “uber”.)
sideshowpat - 1 (“i’ll pass…hopefully tomaros”. Were you eating tomaros?)
herrojima - 1 (“hmmmm, weel, I’m writer, so when i got my self a new PDA, i was complete,y drawn to…”. Completely self-explanatory!)
BrBea - 1 (“If I bought this then I would be tied to one phone until it does of old age.” Does what?)
diem - 1 (“I am truing this out mostly just for fun”. OMG! I am falsing mine out for the same reason!)
mlthorne - 1 (“this person is sell knowledge of the existance of woot” Cell knowledge?)
thenewdeal - 1 (“could someone answers some questions for me?” How manys answer do you needs?)
cpeters - 1 (“for all you blueteooth whiners you can buy an adaptor that plugs in to the 2.5 or whatever mm headphone jack.” Nothing worse than a teooth whiner!)
tunatamaker - 1 (”…contact me at tunatamaker@gmail.com for the very cheap pricing." You can tune a piano, you can tune a guitar, but you can’t tune a fish.)
welcome - 1 (“very informitive post.” I find YOUR comment very informative.)
mac daddy - 1 (Also, wining about the wineners.)
Total - 23

Looks like a great price – I’ve seen them go for a lot more elsewhere… Plus it’s unlocked!

Price on Amazon.com: $549.99
SkyMall Price: $499.99

This should sell out quickly!

Now the question of whether to buy…
