Linux As smartphone prices decline, they have become more popular every day. Symbian, PalmOS, Windows Mobile and Linux seem to be the big names in this high-end market of phones, all showcasing PDA-like features, native toolkits and fast processors. Today we are looking at one of the most popular Linux smartphones (especially in Asia), the Motorola E680i, which was released around May 2005 and was graciously provided by Geeks.com for this article.

A simple little disclaimer like that would go a _long_ way. This _really_ clears up all of my qualms with the original story. Especially the second paragraph. Your review makes complete sense now, knowing that. I just felt it shouldn't be left to assumption "how" you write reviews. I'm fairly new here, I don't know your "style" and I'm sure there's lots of other new people visiting every day. I really enjoyed seeing a review of a *phone* here, it makes for variety. I thought it was well written. I just didn't know your style was simply pick out ALL negative things, and generalize "it's a good phonelinux " -translated to-> everything that I didn't mention as bad is wonderful. Thank you absolutely for clearing this up. It'll make reading your future reviews very easy. Maybe there should be a Bio section to this site where we can read about people's personality/writing style?
