dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear-facing autofocus camera with
flash and FullHD video capture, front-facing video-chat camera, a Video
Producer app to create and edit HD videos right on the phone, Virtual QWERTY
keyboard with Swype technology, and DLNA certification to share music and video
with other DLNA devices.

The purchase price
requires a two-year contract for a voice plan starting at $39.99/month and a
smartphone data package, which starts at $30/month for 2GB of data.
