B&O used to made phones together with ericsson (as far as i remember, they had phones that look very similar to ericsson's GH-series).

nice try B&O!

i think they should put the blame on themselves for coming up with a usless phone that lacks so many features for the business people who are the ones who can usually afford them.

Their phones looked like rubbish anyway.
