Right.  Someone gave me a blackberry with GPS hardware... great, but apps 
can't use the GPS because of some stupid Verizon policy thing (although the

even without trying to use FOSS on them.

And the difference is "game console" versus actual *productivity*.  Oh, the 
things I could do with a phone if I could run Debian on it...!
