Having switched completely to all kinds of unixes and FirefoxOS on the phone i'm unable to read that DRM-bullshit amazon is selling. Will never buy an ebook that has DRM again. And it's even more outrageous that the Sellers claim i can't resell it, so i will probably not buy an ebook again, DRM or not.

- most important: a sync feature (for example with a basestation at your home) that does NOT give up your personal health data to the manufacturers server, which in term will sell your data to health insurance companies and what not. - standalone operation, not a dumb device that needs a bluetooth tethered smartphone near it all the time - buttload of sensors, like pulse, oxygen level, blood pressure, odometer, body/outside temperature - battery run time in the region of weeks or months - physical buttons on the front, not side. if it has an laughable stamp-sized touchscreen i am not going to buy it - waterproof, not water resistant

I'm not found of my ZTE Open. The touchscreen sucks, Reception is abysmal and so on. Oh, and there is only one thing i hate more than the ZTE Open: FirefoxOS itself. I dont mind the feature set, i bought this for development and stuff, but FFOS (1.2, or 1.3 or 1.4) is just too unstable. I'm stuck at the lockscreen way too often, and given the current state of the development tools it's very hard to debug the source. My opinion regarding getting a FFOS phone is: Wait.
