    It's seems like a sub $120 phone, if the App Store is any good by December, I'll get one for work, and my little girl can play with it. Like I'm doing with my $100 Galaxy y ATM

    I'm sure the app market will grow very quickly, being open source and all i'm pretty sure the selection process to get to the store will be simpler and faster.

    Since I live and work in 3d world countries, I would consider buying one if the price is right (people rob us for phones fairly frequently). I already keep a 45 dollar "dumb phone" on me to use around town. I could handle laying out a 100 or so for a phone like this one. If it gets stolen, I'll get over it.
