"All things considered, it's not a bad device for an unlocked, entry-level handset. ... Vivo Brazil is making the phone immediately available for 449 Brazilian reals, or about $205 in U.S. currency, for pay-as-you-go customers."
does "pay-as-you-go" imply off contract? If thats the case that is.... interesting, as the Nexus 4 is now just $199. Granted it is out of stock and I believe it's been out of stock for a while. I don't know if theres not going to be an American version of the fire web or American price or if the conversion rates complicates things but... isn't that little steep then?
I'm curious to see where this goes. They're facing some fairly stiff competition and (not being a fan of Firefox) I don't imagine this really taking off.
Hey you guys think you'll get your hands on one? While I Love android I like to see other minor OSes and see what they can offer.
unfortunately the nexus 4 is dead so not really a comparison anymore. I mean compared to other android budget phones its not too bad but its also a completely different operating system who's app ecosystem is pretty small. Which is why it probably wont ever make it to the states.
its a 3 year old phone with a 4-inch display with a 480x320 resolution. Hmm at that resolution and size the icons might be big enough for some older folks.. it could be Grandpa's first Smart Phone.
Pretty cool. But I do wonder if it will land here in the states.
