BlackBerry users lace-up cheap skates

“MobileRated says the fact that lots of high-end phones are in the list indicates that even when playing free games, people want the latest technology. I say it means city fat cats prefer to spend their bonuses on third homes and mistresses rather than paying for mobile games. But as you wish.”
