JGZimmerle>"Looks to me like another attempt from Paul Berverly to make an educated guess on the number of Omega owners"

Perhaps the more pertinent point is why is there an effort to obscure how many Omega users there are ? It is a *reasonable* question to try gauge this number. Developers (for example) would probably like to know is it worth their while developing stuff for Omega's specific features if there are too few potential customers/users to justify it. Potential buyers might also like to know - as the more fellow users there are the better "user community" support they might get.

Now if all developers, potential buyers and other interested parties get is glib replies like "Omega users used the phone" (quite) that does *nothing* to improve the public perception of that product. It leads to disquieting questions and people being wary of Omega - surely the last thing MD (or their ardent supports) should be doing.
