    "Symbian: 87 percent. PalmSource (makers of Palm OS operating system): 7 percent. Microsoft: 4 percent"

    Where is the heck did they get this data?? I don't even know a single person with a Symbian smartphone. What country are they talking about??

    You know how they have all that "stuff" on Nokia phones that they market as being state of the art tools -- calendar, contacts, etc.? I think they are counting those phones as smartphones.

    Sheesh, if I use that as criteria, then I could say my 600 is a multitasking device since I can use Agendus while I'm on the phone and I can receive calls while my gps is running.

    I'm almost certain that's European data. Isn't msmobiles a Europe-based site?

    Exactly. The first line of the article states their definition of "smartphone":

    'By "smartphone" most analysts usually mean both smartphones (without touch screen but with keypad) and PDA phones (with touch screen or with full QWERTY keyboard).'
