The New Qtek Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphones

Translator’s Note

I’m not anywhere near a perfect translator and as such this translation was done way too late in the night. I’ve tried correcting all major spelling and grammer mistakes, so the main message should be still there in the translated text. In case you are wondering why the text appears longer than the Finnish text, it is only because the Finnish language is wonderous in the ways one can “compress” so much information in so little words. It might be that the wording sounds out of contexts at times, but that is mainly due to me not being able to find a better word at the time that I translated this.

Enough about that, over to the phones: basically, the Qtek 8300 and 8310 have gotten the exact same “marketing speech” and technical details (someone seems to like copy-and-pasting over at Qtek), with the only difference between the two models being the outer case design. That, my dear readers, is the reason for why I have a longer story for the Qtek 8310 than the 8300. In case something feels unclear, don’t hesitate to ask in the PDAgold forums by clicking the comments link at the bottom of this page. Now, enjoy…
