There are quite a few devices in accesorries in the sale.
But £25 for a 3.2 inch touch screen device is super cheap.

The merchant reminded me of that annoying TV advert with the women whispering.

nothing smart about that, no android/no windows/no ios = not a smartphone

why make a website that you have to sign up to see these so called deals?

good way to deter custom

Not strictly true, no android/no windows/no ios = not a popular smartphone.

Symbian, UIQ, Blackberry OS, Tizen, Meego/Sailfish, Palm OS, webOS etc were or are all used on phones classed as smartphones. I'm not familiar with HTK as an OS, but provided it permits the user to make calls and undertake other functions such as web-browsing, take photos etc, it's still classed as a smartphone.

Exactly! .. I was about to say similar .. before Android & the like came along, the main Smartphones people were rocking were these Symbian variant Smartphones?, so ..... lol. :-)

IT looks aweful, you would hate using this, and you would hate that you couldnt install the things that other epople where installing. eventually you would bin this piece of rubbish and buy a proper one, resulting in you losing out on the cost of th phone, so not a deal.

Wow, Google, Microsoft and Apple have really put the blinkers on you haven't they? That's the way they'd like us all to think.

nothing to do with that at all, this is a 10 year+ OS with no apps no games of todays standards, so no smartphone by todays standards

OK, so the phone 'may' be smart...what about anyone who buys it?

not so smart. not a modern os, not supported by anybody, so difficult to see how its any more useful or smarter than a feature phone. Oh yes, it has a bigger display, and it may be touch screen, but if you cant get up to date and popular software for it, your left with the features that came with it, hence it being a feature phone pretending to be a smartphone. to be fair, for this price, you would be an idiot to expect anything else.

Agreed, even the SE P800 (which was way ahead of its time in adopting touchscreen and a form factor that wouldn't look out of place today, running on UIQ) was released ahead of the SPV.
