The phone has more internal flash memory and integrated Wi-Fi. It will be ready for customers in October, available in $450 and $600 configs (a bit higher than the $350 we quoted you in February). On July 9th, 1,000 development kits will be comin' straight outta China, with more on the way. The hardware specs have been jacked up, too.
