I don't know about you but I am already completely frustrated with all these feature-packed phones with crappy battery life. If its official specs prove to be true, the next phone I will be buying is a (hopefully) cheap recyclable Motorola W233 with 18 days stand-by time..

And horrible voice quality still. Phones now days are about advanced enough to make breakfast for you, but they still do a sh*tty job at just being a phone.

You are absolutely right. The voice quality on my HTC Touch is horrible! It's unbelievable how bad it is, and you know i'm not gonna talk about windows mobile general quality...
Impressive for a 1year old 410€ phone.
