It's at $5.2M right now. I'm thinking they now have a pretty decent chance
of making it.  Which means I'll actually have to pay the money, but what
the heck, this thing looks pretty awesome.  And if Verizon buys Wind, I
might be in the market for a new cell provider next year anyway.

The tiered pricing is pretty clever, really. Because there's going to be
that "if I don't buy now I'll miss out on this price" throughout the
campaign.
