Is it really worse than any of the other 1ghz phones in terms of performance?

Snapdragon is a combined chip isn't it? so you've got one chip pushing graphics for two screens and handling background processing? If that's correct I'm thinking it would be way worse than what's currently out there.

If you care about benchmarks, yes.

It does not have WiMax (4G), so it cannot be considered a high-end or "flagship" phone.

I've seen a few ads here too. I've not seen the #'s on sales but I'm guessing big fail here. Just don't see the appeal at all.

With two screens and current battery technology I'm thinking that down the road it may be a good idea but right now it's probably more of a tech demo or gimmick.

Any phone that ships with two batteries can't really be taken seriously, imho...
