Keepin' it real fake, part CCXXVIII: the Quantum lives up to its name, somehow

The "Quantum." For us, a name like "Quantum" invokes visions of powerful, everlasting batteries, huge touchscreens, cameras that could makes your Hasselblad look like a Cracker Jack toy, and infinite badassery the likes of which the world has never known. Creating a phone that dares to bear the name Quantum, therefore, is less of an engineering science and more of an art. Admittedly, mating an iPhone with a Samsung Memoir never crossed our minds as a possible means to that end -- but we're pleased to see that some manufacturing firm had their eyes on the prize and saw that vision through to its glorious conclusion. Indeed, the Quantum is far greater than the sum of its parts -- sure, the camera has shriveled from 8 megapixels to 0.3 and the radio has gone from HSDPA to GPRS, but college-level physics can't be measured in megapixels or megabits per second. Especially when they only cost $94.03.
