a bit misleading

David Beers article is a bit misleading. Trolltech not only announced an upcoming "handset", but had the Greenphone on demonstration with a real working Qtopia, as well as other real working handsets that run Qtopia.

He was relying on a subtle distinction. The greenphone is meant to be a developer's reference platform. The phone that ALP is using in its demos is a shipping phone.

It is a distinction without a difference, as I'm sure the ODM who makes the greenphone for trolltech would be happy to "design" a very similar phone for a customer, and, meanwhile, ALP does not yet have a customer.
