This is no joke, guys. This spec list is insane, and it accomplishes no regular smartphone ever has. I especially like that there is no component missing here. It is a no-compromise smartphone. The best part is that this is not to be some obscure device, it will be launching in the USA after March.
Pre-orders are starting soon. You can go ahead and sign up at Saygus’ website to be among the first to put your name to one of these. Sadly, price is not being revealed, but based on clues and hints we picked up, it should average at around $400 off-contract.
I do have one worry, though. How well will Saygus keep up with updates? Will they continue to support it well? Well, the phone is backed by an ex-Motorola employee. In a way, it’s like his geeky dream come true, but is it yours, too?
