We posted about the appearance of the Nokia Phi on WPBench yesterday, and this was soon followed by a rash of other devices in a huge deluge, including the Nokia Alpha, Lambda, HTC Raindrop, Nokia PureLambda, PurePhi etc etc etc.

At the time the arrival of these entries were sob obviously suspicious that we did not make any attempt to report on them.  Many other sites, including Engadget, however did. Robert Varga from WPBench contacted us to make it clear he will be removing these obviously  spurious entries from the database. He also made it clear that it is pretty easy to see which entries are real or not.

It should of course  be of note to readers which entries he is NOT in fact removing.

In summary, we can only agree with the one submission which actually had a hint of humour:

Thanks Robert Varga from WPBench for the info.
