  1. myPhone fell from 2-feet, broken glass, maybe they’re planning on something a bit more durable. Painfully clear this is more of an electronic (mini-computer) with a telephone included than a basic smart-phone. If you purchase one (or have one) I would recommend getting some kind of protective case.

  2. The top of the line model will support 3rd party apps.

    The middle of the line model will not, but will be touch based, and will have more functionality than current models.

    The entry level model will be an iPhone nano type of device you give to your kids.

    You heard it here first.
