ADVERTISING: How to explain a customer that a mobile phone is web enabled?

Today I just came across the following advertising from mobilcom Germany; a German GSM Service Provider who is reselling T-Mobile, Vodafone and E-Plus minutes and service plans under its own name and brand and previously also owned a German 3G license.

I was really amazed when I saw a Nokia 3650 with a Microsoft Pocket Internet Explorer in their latest flyer ;-)

Hehehe... Either the mobilcom product manager is a funny guy or even better - a Pocket PC user or mobilcom's advertising agency already realized that Pocket PCs and its Pocket Internet Explorer is the de facto standard for mobile Internet devices! ;-)

However, the Nokia 3650 doesn't support the shown Web but XHTML "only" by default which means mobilcom is directing the reader into the wrong direction! :-(

So if you want to get a real Pocket Internet Explorer enabled device, you should consider to buy either a Microsoft Pocket PC Phone Edition like the PPCW.Net i-Mate Phone Edition or if you are looking for something smaller and more handy you should think about a Microsoft Smartphone!

But still funny to see a Nokia device (just a Nokia) with a Microsoft Pocket PC Pocket Internet Explorer... ;-) LOL... :-D
