      You can get a WindTab only if you currently don’t have one. Just get a credit check and you’ll become a Pay After customer.

    The Optimus 2X is definitely one of the most powerful phones out there. Even better specs than the Atrix. It’s a good move that shows to me that they are broadening their base not just to serve the low-end. But make no mistake, the low-end sells WAY more phones for any carrier than the big ones. Not everyone can afford them. My Nexus works great in midtown T.O.. No probs lately.

  • Matthew

    Just brought a Nexus S (great phone) and now wife needs a smartphone. Hello LG Optimus 2X.

  • CaptainZangetsu

    Nexus S is More Future Proof with updates and better screen

  • Ash

    Looking forward to Mobile Syrups review if they do one.

  • Jason

    The only thing that the Optimus 2x is missing is NFC, that will beome important in a year or two as it gains acceptance, or else I would get one today.

  • stgh

    i wish WIND had contracts… i need a cheap good phone and would gladly go with them for 3 yrs.

  • chri$s

    That blackberry lookalike for $100 looks pretty good.
