successful? when they took your money 1.5 years ago promised to ship 1.25 years
ago.. and still have not? sitting on your money? aweeeeeeeeeeeeeesome. trust me
- it's already outperformed by things like the nexus-1 or a slew of other htc
stuff - the new snapdragon based soc's and more. by double or more. and it
still has yet to ship a single unit. these others have been shipping for ages
(1ghz shnapragon windows mobile toshiba phone been going for a while now).
openpandora is a wonderful example of a big fat FAIL on this. it's last time my
money goes to any such group/venture.
