Hot phones
Pretty amazing to see how quickly a market can emerge around a product that is no longer available.  But just as amazing that someone would $10,000 + for a phone with this app.

Re: It's Nguyen, not Dong...
> what you don't realize is in Vietnam, people are addressed by first name in most cases.

Indeed, in the Vietnamese press, writers use "Dong" rather than "Nguyen." The Reuters article cited, written by a Hanoi correspondent, does the same. However, our style is to use the surname.

Re: It's Nguyen, not Dong...
In journalism, quotes are often presented using the speakers last name, for example "Obama said on Tuesday..."

It's Nguyen, not Dong...
In Vietnam, names are presented with the surname first. So the guy's last name is Nguyen, not Dong, and sentences like "Dong said..." just make you look culturally illiterate.
