Ad blocking makes impossible to maintain PDAdb.net

Welcome to PDAdb.net. We have been publishing up-to-date, in-depth specs of smartphones, tablets, PDAs and other mobile devices with undiminished enthusiasm for more than 10 years.
We are in big trouble now. The site was fully reengineered back in Oct, 2016. This project was comprehensive, thus expensive and we faced financial difficulties soon. Our primary source of income is publishing advertisements on the site. You and a significant portion of PDAdb.net visitors use ad blockers against PDAdb.net which is steadily making impossible to maintain the site.
Please support us and consider turning off ad blocking to keep PDAdb.net alive. Thank you, PDAdb.net
