    I'm going to start this thread with two...

    AirText and SmartSkin. Both featured here on possibly the ugliest wireless phone ever produced, the Cuirtel Identity. (Formerly known as the Kyocera Kurv) Gross. These two "innovations" do nothing to aid you in making a call, they're cute for teenage girls but only suck up battery life. :censored: that :censored: , Silent Bob!

    I agree. It looks like some kind of deformed creature upside down.

    That is 1 ugly phone, I also can't believe how ugly the Nokia's are getting. I hope someone at Nokia wakes up before they loose more customers. I mean the newest one can write messages in the air while moving the phone back & forth. Get with the program Nokia, work on Flip phones first, i am getting ready to go to another company.

    The worst innovation in wireless was the phone subsidy, without the phone subsidy, we would already have more advanced phones, because the customers would be used to spending a couple of hundred dollars on new phones (even basic ones.) so when new high end phones came out people would not have sticker shock.

    Manufactures, could have focused on making higher end phones, versus, the masses of low end phones out there.

    Damn, WBB, I hadn't thought of that but you're right, the phone subsidy is worse than AirText. Word up!
