Now that all phone enabled windows devices are 'smartphones' - don't the sub catagories need a bit of re-jigging / renaming? They should all be in the smartphone section else remove the smarthphone tag and make it purely 'standard / pro'?

Just a thought.

Smartphone was MS's idea of "adopting standards" - taking a standard and changing the meaning of it!

Not all devices are "smartphones" - they are now known as Windows Mobile Standard and Windows Mobile Professional (and Classic I guess), but the main forum groups include both these and their previous names.

Personally I wouldn't change them, MS are bound to do another renaming before too long to confuse anyone who's got used to this new convention.

All phone enabled WM devices are Smartphones according to Microsoft! The device is a Smartphone, the software they run is Windows mobile 'pro' or 'classic'. Just thought for a windows mobile website the forum headings should reflect the new nomenclature.
