    Now this interests me, I hope they've made it so you could potentially use the phone and never ever have to use the AMOLED screen. With a full touch screen on both sides they should just have the screens mirrored so you can use either for any interaction with your phone.

    *edit* no they haven't, e-ink needs specific apps, damnit Yota you had one job and that was to make an e-ink phone with the option of an LCD.

    I'm with you on this - that's an interesting phone, certainly more interesting than Samsung and their ever-expanding Galaxy S line.

    I'm going to be more charitable on the eInk apps though - for my limited purpose chances are that "there's an app for that" so maybe I can go sans-AMOLED 90%+ of the time. TBH as long as I can check the time and read my text messages I'm sorted for most of the time.

    Wonder what the battery life is like though.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
