Many people like flip phones... most of them in asia and in the US: See the Success of flip phone (eg. Motorola or Panasonc) for example in the US and the usercount of phones like this here in europe.
As soon as i get one, i will take a look at it, but im still very happy with my Bold and Curve :-)
