Re: written off phones

loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $965 million, or $1.84 per share diluted,

including a primarily non-cash, pre-tax charge against inventory and supply commitments of

approximately $934 million(the “Z10 Inventory Charge”), from the fiancial statement DD i have done, it looks like we just put the cost of the units onto the books as an expense.. so we will call it revenue when they are sold..based on the big inventory sales in india i expect a big profit on the books as the expense of these phones has already been accounted for so it is all profit at this point
