How many WinMo 6.5 Phones are there?

Who cares?

if other people want make a "copy cat" of it, or make one of their own or whatever, let them. if they wanna do cathc up they can do whatever they want. there is no rule in catch up or copy cat. there are some people who want the copy cat version or one "like" the iphone. the more choices the better. Cool
Cool Better words have never been spoken.
