A smartphone is a mobile phone that offers more advanced computing ability and connectivity than a contemporary basic 'feature phone'. Smartphones and feature phones may be thought of as handheld computers integrated within a mobile telephone, but while most feature phones are able to run applications based on platforms such as Java ME or BREW, a smartphone allows the user to install and run more advanced applications based on a specific platform. Smartphones run complete operating system software providing a platform for application developers.
@ arkin: Chill arkin, thats what i asked in the second post! who would vote for a "dumb"phone?
@ AMG: its all up to us to decide that bro! there are no such set regulations that define a phone's category. now i feel most of nokia's phones, except the cheaper ones are premium phones. the E series can be said as a business phone, similar to blackberrys. this is what i feel... you decide what you want to term your phone!
