    Yeah this “affordable” thing kinda seems impossible with those specs that they are listing.

    The Gekko is supposed to be the successor to the SidekickiD right? It should be priced lower than the flagship LX but we’ll see…

    Not really. Its targeted towards females but that doesn’t mean that guys can’t have it. Like the iD was targeted twards people with a budget but that doesn’t mean everyone who has it doesn’t have money.

    Is it just me, or are a lot of the OTA update and “new” kick replies, seem to be trolls?
    (Trolls= people who work for a company or subcontracted, and are paid to sit at a pc, and post positive messages to promote a certain product,etc., to a selected group of consumers)

    Lol, I’m jusssssst saying….
    And as for the update, what the duce?! 1st time hearing about it today,let alone receiving it! Same goes for the “new” kick,is that some sort of sick joke?
