"in regards to people not understanding reasons for product releases"4.0 starson by mjl2610
Pros: small slim design that is easy to have on you
Cons: wish it had EDGE technology
Summary: This is more of a comment rather than a review. It’s to summarize some other comments I made on other boards. It seems that people are really miffed over the fact that this phone was not released on the United States CDMA technology but on the global GSM technology. In a quick regard to these ignorant and unintelligent comments... these companies are SMART believe it or not. With world wide GSM subscriber growth in excess over 1 billion on this network tech. versus far far less on an overall CDMA tech. why wouldn’t a cellular phone manuf. release these phones on GSM first? It’s a way to make money and target the maximum growth potential around the world as a company to make money to say the least. think before you act.
