Don't you think that the the above mentioned phone looks very hard to a Sendo X?
I mean stereo speakers and loud handsfree???
It even looks similar IMHO.

Although dont fancy the idea of having to buy more memory cards (it takes Sandisk T-flash cards) when i have loadsa MMC and SD cards already.
Yes, on the face of it they are similar. The Sendo X however basically has a lot more power and flexibility. Why? 4 processors + DSP, a Symbian OS giving you access to many new applications and basically giving you a computer in the form of a phone, also Sendo provide continual firmware updates and bug fixes while the E398 is set in stone. The screen is bigger on the X too, you have the Now! screens allowing you to heavily customise the way you use the phone. And as previously mentioned, the SD/MMC cards accepted by the X are much more widely available and cheaper than the T-Flash cards of the E398.
The E398 while nice-ish is little more than another attempt at a trendy but unflexible handset to appeal to people who don't know any better, much like most Nokias.
In other words, it''s "all mouth and no trousers", as we like to say here in the UK ;)
