Audiovox SMT5600 Still Up For Grabs at

The Audiovox SMT5600 (AKA: The ScoblePhone) is _still_ up for grabs at Amazon. There’s a perpetual two-week offer for a $200 rebate, along with a $50 AT&T rebate. That brings the post-rebate cost down to $-25.01. The rebate has been reissued at least three times now. Not sure how many more rounds there will be.

There’s been a bit of confusion about the “required” data plan. Most people are reporting that they don’t end up getting signed up for a data plan, or that AT&T customer service obliged in removing or changing the data plan after signup. After reading several stories of outrageous first-month bills resulting from incorrect assumptions about the data plan, it’s probably a good idea to follow-up with AT&T after your service is activated.
