    Can someone explain to me what's with the awkward right sided charging port placement on the dtek60?? I do not own the device nor have I seen one in person, but that would drive me absolutely nuts!! Call me OCD or whatever you may, but I'm sorry, I could really see that bothering me big time.

    And the non-center placement of 3.5 mm jacks doesn't bother you?

    Sure, it's a little odd, but I don't see why it would be a real problem.

    Design, the speakers are in the center.

    No!! Cause the charging port should always be centred. What happens if there's a charging cradle released? Not going to work out too well for design

    Wouldn't a DTEK60 charging cradle be designed with DTEK60 in mind, hence, also, with an off-centre USB plug?

    All designs have compromises and two things cannot be in the same place at the same time.

    Stereo speakers mean having the bottom one where you'd otherwise put the charging socket. If you had only ONE speaker (at the top) it wouldn't matter and you can offset the microphone for calls without a problem, but once the design decision is made to have stereo speakers (which, incidentally, I like a lot on this phone!) that's the compromise you must make.

    Which would look silly!

    I guess most blackberry fans just let imperfections slide I guess. I'm a blackberry fan, but that is just poor design.

    I'm just glad the 3.5mm is on the top.

    Doesn't our Passport have dual speakers in bottom with center USB? Although I guess it's because it's a lot wider than DTEK60.

    No worse that the charge port on the side of the Z10. That drove me nuts

    Wow totally forgot about that! Our old bolds were all like that also. Very poor design. I honestly think that alone might stop me from buying a dtek60 not kidding. I would hate to look at that.

    Yes the top does seem easier to access doesn't it. Especially when in car
