"Excellent update from the first version."5.0 starson by bobbyphoenix
Pros: Call quality, size, color, features, apps, durability, magic keypad, SAR rating.
Cons: Non USB, 2.5 jack, no HTML browser.
Summary: I got the first gen when it came out, but I "traded up" for the Dare a couple months later, but really didn't love it. This one came out, and I just had to get it. The only thing I miss is the HTML browser on the Dare, but I really don't need it. The Alias 2 beats the Dare in the other areas that matter to me, so that's all I need. Great voice, great screen, great apps, great phone.
