"Unfortunately, ďdonít judge a book by its coverĒ rule apply to this Ascent phone. Itís not good on the inside. It doesnít have a camera, MP3 player, radio, or 3D gaming chip. This phone, well, like other luxurious items, is just for showing-off purpose. Itís for people who have too much money and they donít know how else they can get rid of them. Not for people whoís looking for a real phone"

"..To the designers, that meant leaving out anything that might possibly confuse the owner, including perks commonly found in much cheaper phones like Bluetooth wireless for hands-free headsets and voice-operated systems like the one in the 2004 Acura TL, or a browser for checking e-mail, weather or movie times. You can send SMS messages, but there's no way to take and send photos and other multimedia files .."
Sorry, let me rephrase:

"You get what you pay for in build quality and material"
