discount supermarket chain Lidl, which is
somewhat under fire for spying on workers, has an interesting offer: since
today it's selling the HTC Qtek 8500 for 111 Euro only.
While the Qtek 8500, which was released nearly two years ago, is a stylish and
HTC's only clamshell smartphone so far, it has some major drawbacks: It's 2.5G
only featuring quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, only sporting a 1.3 megapixel camera and having 64
MB RAM and ROM only. However, the most important drawback, running Windows
Mobile 5.0 Standard only, can be - well -
solved yourself anyway.
So if you live anywhere in Germany, don't fear to flash your device with some
self-cooked ROMs, don't have moral problems to buy anything from Lidl anymore
but want something stylish - Lidel's Qtek 8500 offer isn't a bad deal at all. I
liked my Qtek 8500 the days I got it for testing from HTC.
