    Off contract price?

      AND the Exhibit has the Hummingbird processor – way better than this 600mhz Wildfire. For the price, Exhibit seems to be the way to go.

    I have to say, after playing with our floor model, I really really liked this phone. It seems strange to say this since I currently have a non-bugging G2X, but I kind of want this phone. I’ve got smaller hands and it just feels really nice to hold…comfortable. It felt solid for the size, which I like, especially compared to the Exhibit which always felt a little too light for my tastes. Think I might need to pick one up :)

    September 2011 Update: Virgin Mobile Prepaid now has this phone.  Sure that will burn your bacon for some of you in here.  :)
