    it’s also the most over priced, dissapointing, fanboy defining piece of crap.

    not exactly surprising.
    i just cant justify it, i mean everything it can do my phone can do.
    so why would i shell out a minimum of 540 bucks for one?
    if i could use it as a more portable laptop then i could justify it.
    but you cant, its just a oversized ipod touch!

    Yeah – and it’s a shame the thing’s already overheating…

    not surprising allot of devices have these issues close to release.
    4 had the same problems and was fixed pretty quickly in a os update.
