I got the Dash about 4 months ago right after the price drop from $149.99 to $99.00. I think this price makes the phone a great buy. I did considerable reviewing of comparable phones and there are not any that are in this price range with the same features. The phone, just as many other reviews have stated is a little sluggish when using the menus. The phone however is quite useable despite being a little bit slow. The internet is slow but that is expected for an edge network phone. For all I use it for, email, and contacts, Google Maps, and the occasional website it is an awesome phone.
The build quality is excellent. The phone is slim but big enough if you have larger hands.
This is not a phone for a hard core mobile internet user but the phone is perfect if you need a cheap Smartphone for email, messaging, and contacts this is your phone. It seamlessly integrates with all the popular email systems Gmail, yahoo, MSN, or any other POP3 account. Also this is the first phone I have seen that supports HTML email so you can view all of your email. Being able to use Google Maps was also a big plus so that I can look at traffic before or after work. Email and messaging are very easy and fast because of the qwerty keyboard.
Simple to use
Slow user interface (Not too slow just not snappy)
