That's a surprisingly high percentage. Outbound bandwidth caps for
ADSL tend to be 25% or 50% of the inbound, which means only 20% or 33%
of the sum of the bandwidths.

The R380 was supposed to be a closed platform too because Ericsson cut
costs by using a processor without an MMU (hence no memory
protection). However, the application installation code was never
removed from the synchronisation system. So you can put applications
on there - though building them is another matter, as there is
obviously no SDK. I wonder if the same is true for this Fujitsu

Java, so they didn't have a lot of choice there.

This is the very same encoding used on many mobile phones.
