"smartphone" seems to be a bit more of a marketing term than something
precise anyway.... basically: "like an iphone, only the BB was sorta
there first so we'll grandfather that in"

[I have a phone which does have a fairly big (533 x 800 @300dpi)
high-quality display, downloadable apps, decent web-browsing, email, a
very nice-quality camera, a motely assortment of preinstalled "lifestyle
apps" etc -- but the marketing by the provider (Au) clearly separates it
from "smartphones".]
