Hello

What do you think. Will this phone replace OMC as "best buy" phone.
I mean: for small amount of money we got quite a good phone.

Thank you.

KInd regards

Price wise & spec...it should but I think its all going to come down to how easy it is/will be to customize the phone; if its as easy as the ZTE Blade was then I suspect this phone might well take the crown :)

I think it should, to me this is what the osf 2 and monte carlo should have been spec wise, what they released wasn't a good enough spec boost to warrant upgrading

at the moment, yes, the new zte devices have yet to appear.

the Motorola MotoLuxe is an equivalent device and it's £80 more expensive, for a Moto logo and a locked bootloader

We've had no reports of getting into recovery, fastboot or bootloader modes yet, plus we are waiting for the first rooted device and clockworkmod recovery port

Yeah, I reckon it could definitely be the new budget king.

Can't get into fastboot / bootloader yet, I have got into recovery which won't flash unsigned zips and has ADB enabled in non-root mode only.

I think both phones are going to have an impact, and maybe some of the ZTE once they become available.
