aionwannabe: 
It does however retail for atleast $600 so you are definitely paying for that build quality but ICS is a big draw. Do you think i can get one for about $400 from trademe theres one listed right now?


Well as usual, phone prices in NZ are a ripoff - you can get a brand new unlocked Desire Z from eBay (US) for just $280 NZD! Anyways, if you want one soon, the one TradeMe looks good - $300, closes on sunday, still has warranty.. It's worth it IMHO and you have a good chance of winning it too, since very few people prefer a phone with a keyboard. :)

Nokia have a new Asha 300 I think it's called. Candybar styles with traditional number pad (so not qwerty) and a resistive touch screen. Maybe that fits a bill for someone? Maybe....

If we are going to mention the Nokia Asha 300, then perhaps the Asha 303 with physical QUERTY might be a better option within that sub $400 price range.

Whoops, sorry I didn't' see that one.

Personally I'd opt for an Android option if I went down this route. Not sure if the 303 is resistive or not like the 300 etc.

The other cheap option being the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro...?

kyhwana2: Ugh, keep hearing back things about the LG Optimus phones..

Feel free to explain more.....
I have an LG P500 and personally I find it very good, for the price.  


kyhwana2:have you looked at the Xperia Pro? (The new one, not the X10 or mini pro)

No I'm looking for around $200, and that appears to be $350?
Actually it looks like only computer shops are selling the sony slide phones, is that right?
