Seems like they have a lot of smartphones.  Of note, the ones I looked at all seemed to be GSM only.  Parallel Import??

Any of these actually any good? (I need a new phone and wouldn't mind a smart phone, but at a good (read cheap) price.

My pick of all of those would be the Blackberry storm - 3G, proper smartphone, not too old.

they would al be Parallel Imports, I'd say - especially seeing things like the T-Mobile sidekick.

I'd suggest the HTC Desire, one hell of a smartphone. My mate used a Blackberry Storm for work. Said it was the worst phone he's ever owned. Eaach to their own though.

And how does this ties up to the FirstIn sale that happened a month ago? I don't think the HTC Desire was even listed in that sale.

Didn't know we were talking about a sale that happened a month a go. I did visit the site and saw no phones for sale on it. Was just giving my opinion as to what I thought of a certain smartphone just in case the OP is still looking.

Ok, I will give it you, being in the UK and all... "FirstIn" is a one-day sales website. This topic is specifically about that sale, which lasted one day only. Hence my surprise in seeing something coming back on this topic - and unrelated.
