I just call it how I see it, pretty good, especially when you think of the gimmick / pre-hating comments that were / are going around...you can call it whatever you want too also .

They were lugging sidekicks around when they were popular... Need I say more about thickness?

People ran around with pagers when they were popular, but just like thick heavy phones, no one needs them now. This thing has no identity, that's my issue with it. If it was a phone, at almost 7 ounces that's a big thing for a teenage girl to lug around. The teen girls I see walking around my neighborhood would have to wear a harness around their necks to carry it.
