    Looks like a very tempting piece of hardware.
    Still in doubt about purchasing though, price is at $775 now (or $700 for the double-edge offer) and it seems, after the initial surge in pledges, interest is lowering.
    Based on most recent numbers the ratio of pledged $/minute is rapidly declining from over 800 to around 280$/min. link.
    Such a decline, if continued, would make the 32 million goal not feasable unfortunately.

    Yeah when I saw the video and the specs I was like a kid at Christmas lol. I'm especially impressed by the screen, all sapphire crystal :thumb: The lense on the rear camera of my iPhone 5 is sapphire crystal so it's easy to see just how big of a leap it is to use it for the whole screen, very nice. Obviously there's a lot of reasons to get excited about this device and the way the technology it uses will influence the smartphone world, this device marks a new era.
