I think it reflects poorly on a manufacturer when they actually have to insist that their device is a real PDA phone in a notice such as this :-
Please note that this is a Genuine PDA phone. Most other so-called PDA-phones advertised by other suppliers are NOT true PDA phones,butsmart phones only with a firmware interface similar to Windows Mobile.No application can be installed on these false PDA-phones and the OS cannot be altered. True PDA phones run on Microsoft Windows, Linux or similar OS and all Windows/Linux applications can be installed.
Cry me a river, dude, but statements like that just seem to strip whatever little credibility there is left. For those who are not turned off yet, check out the specifications after the jump.
