This is encouraging, but...

$575 for a phone? I dunno... I certainly don't want to put $600 on my credit card, not with the interest rate they charge, and taking out a conventional loan for a phone seems kind of... extreme? Silly? Outrageous, even?

I think this aspect of the digital revolution, this whole smartphone thing, I may just have to let go by... Shame, really. They are kinda cool.

Don't fret.... If you look around, you'll find some reasonably priced and capable smartphones now considered a year behind the curve. And as Moore's law continues to push the envelope of tech, the performance levels of the current bleeding edge class of smartphones will drop in price faster than ever.

I feel the same way... for that price I can get two Nexus 4. I don't care if the HTC One is better because it sure as heck isn't $300 better.

Obviously it's stupid to finance a phone, that's just irresponsible, however, yes, it is too much. Most people don't want to drop that kind of money. The people who really want a GE phone will get the Nexus 4. Maybe the next Nexus will have AT&T and T-Mobile LTE bands...

You are buying a PDA and not a phone, that is simply a feature of the PDA. However if you don't use most if not all of it's features then of course the price tag looks very steep.
