  3. Nokia 3250 - False Advertising

    Nokia are the kings of false advertising. They advertise a dancing equaliser on a 3250 - you don't get one; they advertise good battery life and reliability on an N80... click bait scams and false advertising. :p

    OneNote: False advertising?

    Do you consider the lack of a draw feature on OneNote on Windows Mobile to be false advertising? The phones are capable of "handwriting" input recognition, as evident from using the traditional chinese keyboard to draw characters. Also the claim/suggestion
    that the features of OneNote are the same across all platforms while the phones are clearly missing this big part is very much an annoyance. There are apps in the Windows Mobile Store that have notebooks and notes and most especially have a "draw" feature
    and all that comes with that: Multi color pen options, pen thickness variations, etc. All I'm saying is it would be nice to really and truly have a continuous experience on OneNote.
