    Saw it in my rss reader too ($399) but I see it has been changed 🙂

    Too fleet of finger, put that pesky “.” in there. Punctuation makes a difference. 🙂

    My battery life is bad enough, thanks, but definitely not getting this. I’ll stick to using the market and select software from xda-developers.

    I installed the 30 day trial on 2 EVOS, tried to purchase, filled in credit card info etc, clicked submit, selected internet for browser, it tries to connect to but fails to. Not sure if its a bad link or code. Both EVOs do the same thing. Anyone else having problems or any suggestion would be appreciated.
