  1. I really want to try an HTC unit

  2. Na-hurt naman daw yung Samsung Galaxy 551 worth 12-14k lang.

    Almost same specs (qwerty, froyo, etc.) except for slower processor and less ram. But still, for 12k... =/

  3. your prices are seriously outdated. please check out cmk cellphones website. also, its march 2011, this thing has been out since december. a little late to the party are we?

  4. I am really looking forward i buying HTC Desire Z, i Guess it has a 512 MB RAM which would be helpful for making my work faster, it will let me browse as well as help me in my office stuff as well, Since it has a Flash Player also it will be easy for me to browse the internet without restricting myself..
