I received this in an email a bit ago. Nothing else was stated in the email other than "Do as you please"

I sent an email to the author requesting more info and will write a follow up post if/when I receive it.

Here is the follow up I received:

"kennen Sie nicht das Netz, das besser als die 8800 ist, die ehrfürchtigen Blicke, anderes Farbtonkommen"

Can anyone translate?

Plugging into the translator I get this:

"do not know the network that is better than the 8800, the ehrfürchtigen views, other Farbtonkommen"

Grammar is horrible and probably not translated correctly. Looking for real translation.

EDIT! Better translation: do not know the net which is better than 8800 the reverent looks, other tone arrival

If you read the Cingular press release it states it has a blue tint, that's probably exactly what it looks like. The pics floating around all look jet black, and you know AT&T's favorite color is blue....

The pictures floating around show a very jet black color, even on Cingular's press release. So maybe this is a different release for a different carrier on a different network, which is what I am getting at from the translations that are coming from that text.

My limited German translation is: "Don't know what network gets what look (or color) for the 8800. Other colors on the way" I maybe way off....but i tryed.

Different colors on the way? That might be nice.
Variety is always good...

Your photoshop skills leave a lot to be desired, unfortunately.
