Once upon a time, there was a mobile phone manufacturer. And everyone was very happy with the phones he made, becuase they were very stylish and looked cool. Then the mobile phone manufacturer looked at PDAs and jealousy set in, because they were so much cooler and could do more than a standard phone ever could. So the manufacturer went to each of the big OS companies (Symbian, Palm & Windows) and was alloed to start making smartphones. Then things took a turn for the worse. Other manufacturers started copying his designs and so paranoia set in, meaning that no sooner had he developed a phone, he had to abandon it in case someone was working along similar lines, which would cost him his unique style. The first casulty was the SGH-i530 - a Palm smartphone which looked the nuts but never got released. The d700 & D710, 720, et al soon followed. In the end, all the manufacturer had was a Windows smartphone which was the same piece of shit all his rivals produced.

Is this story going to have happy ending :) ? I doubt it..... :frown:
