Okay, we'll admit, if Beyonce absolutely has to endorse a single model, this ain't a bad choice, seeing how the UpStage on which it's based is a music phone of the highest order -- particularly in the B'phone's rather flashy color combo. It's an acquired taste, but it actually looks alright. It's n...

We're giving folks one more opportunity to win Sprint's double-sided wonder, the UpStage from Samsung.
