  • It is hard to say such a thing is clear.
    Significant change, it is.

  • And the user interface is still horrible on every one of them no doubt! I still have unpleasant memories of receiving sms with phone numbers and having to write them down on paper because there was no way to transfer them to my directory or dialing. Incredible!!!
