As much attention as smartphones get in the mobile biz, it's easy to lose site of the fact that dumbphones still reign supreme by sheer volume of users -- and in all likelihood, they will for years to come. To that end, Facebook has hooked up with Snaptu to deliver an app custom-tailored for these p

Back in February, Verizon Wireless made it quite clear what phones could be used with Skype Mobile, and the whole lot were smartphones.
