Curious why there isn't an all encompassing category for phones other than the seemingly popular-4: Symbian is probably the largest, and all those feature phones that have a JVM installed still can do something...

Plus there's mobile phone issues that applies to all phones.

Android, iphone, BB, and Windows aren't the only players out there... and some can say that these aren't the largest four even...

Like any other company, GB only has so many resources (including programmers) to put into developing smartphone apps, so they had to choose among the brands and software development platforms they think are and would remain the most popular.

For any other mobile platform there is the mobile version of the full website which can be used from almost any device that has a basic web browser and low speed internet access.
