    'Cell C did not respond by the time publication'

    I have never seen any high-end SE phones at Cell C stores. I have only ever seen the mid-ends like the old mini and min pro.

    Anyways, the price is not so shabby I must say. Unfortunately, I am not into mobile gaming.

    I honestly wouldn't touch an SE Android phone with a barge pole.. they need to jack up their support systems, and be open about the upgrade cycle of the Android software on the phone.

    Erm smaller devices normally cost more to make as you need to cram the same amount of power into a smaller space, for example go look at the pricing of a iPhone vs Ipad then come back.

    As for the games, there is plenty of other Android titles that also make use of the controls, think of it a s a iPhone that has dedicated controls for gaming. Personally I think its a great idea the only limitation for me is the CPU power, in today's day and age it should have been a dual core.

    I would even pay R7000 if it had dual core and a screen simular to DHD.
    .... and thanks for all the fish.

    Cell C did not respond by the time of publication.
    Pretty well sums up their service too.

    Why would you pay 7k? You could get a power laptop for that price

    Looks fairly epic though.
