Well, most likely anyway. They dropped the price (if you are willing to sign some contract with them for phone service), and fixed most of the design flaws (taking out a few of those features it advertised so much to start with).

However, the biggest flaw doesn't seem to have been addressed at all. There's still not a single good exclusive game for the thing, or even an exclusive game period as far as I know. Unless they can fix THAT problem, there's still no reason whatsoever I would ever want this thing.

What, you don't like side-talkin'? :D

Great Rumbler
It's like talking into a taco! Who wouldn't want to do that?!

OB1
I sure wouldn't not want to!

Great Rumbler
You know it!

OB1
No I don't... not. Not not not not. Reverse not.

The speakers are on the front now... no more side talking. :(

Oh, and they removed the MP3 and FM Radio features, it says...

No one does, hence the whole failure-as-a-portable-gaming-platform-thing.
