Wait is nearly over - phone still sounds like a winner
I don't know willbrady. This phone would have definitely been a winner in December of last year but now it just might be too late for it to be a real success. What will most likely happen to it is just what happened to Siemens' SX1. Yeah it will sell a bit to enthusiasts but it will be mostly overlooked by the general public. I also don't have much faith in Sendo's distribution - they've had all this problems with release and manufacture it's hard to imagine that they will be good at marketing and distribution of this product. We'll see. Personally, I would still give it a shot if it wasn't for the Nokia 6620 with EDGE - I just use data way too much to pass that up, so sorry Sendo. I know that a lot of people are very excited about the Nokia 7610 at this point with it's 1MP camera. Then there is the Series60 clamshell phone from Panasonic and the slider from Samsung. That's just the Series60 phones not even mentioning the stuff running Microsoft OS and the upcoming devices with UIQ. I think the competition is just getting too crowded at this point for Sendo to really make a splash. They had a chance to make a name and establish themselves in the smartphone field back in December when they would've fit nicely between Nokia 3650 and SE P800 and stood out but they simply missed it. Now they will still have a nice product but will be just one of the bunch with somewhat outdated technology. I think that the smartphone field at this point is so new and and so volatile that timing plays an important role in the success of a product. Sendo at this point should really be scrambling to develop the next big thing and this time deliver it on time.
