Seems that's the norm nowadays. First the Desire now the XPRT. More to come I'm sure.
BTW. I ordered one of these. I'm going to be taking it overseas with me. The phone I have on Boost right now fits me well but the XPRT has got me with the functional SIM slot. Once I get rich (lol) I might buy the Desire because it'll replace my current phone AND have a SIM slot. But right now $300 on a phone is not an option.
