  1. i don’t get it. If it’s just your basic slider phone, isn’t WM, WP7, BB, iOS, Android, and content is just a standard press release…..why is it being posted here?

  2. Because it’s mobility related news, and this is ‘Mobility Digest’ last I checked.. it doesn’t say anything about ‘we only post wm,wp7,bb, android or ios news’ does it?! We post anything Mobility related…

    please don’t be a troll.. nobody likes a troll
