Freedom Pop
Hard to beat the deal of "free" or essentially nominal monthly costs for a smartphone experience.  Sure, there is sacrifacing from high end devices and premium telco service, but no doubt Freedom Pop can find its special niche in the market.  If successful, they can try to enter some other nations where the customers may find such deals too good to be true.  

They need to somehow get the word out to the consumers that they exist and what they can offer in terms of bargain basement values.  They really need some scale to make it viable in the long run and to grow into more markets.

Re: VoIP
I was curious about that as well. What makes it a proprietary VoIP service, and what are they doing to ensure the quality?

Re: You buying?
Yes that phone lineup is downright sickly. I mean that HTC Evo Design is running Android 2.3! Much more interesting when they add more devices and incorporate that BYOD option they've promised.

Re: You buying?
It's definitely an interesting approach. I'd be curious to hear how the VoIP quality is and also how far the free data plan goes. I'm not going to make the switch, but I imagine a lot will, especially Sprint customers who understand that it's using the same network. More handset selection will certainly help as well.

So who's going to try this? I would think if they get more modern Android phones in the later product offerings then this could be an interesting way to have an iPhone and Android for cheaps.
