Also people who have previously bought high end feature phones can be lured to smartphone side by giving them more with the same price.
So true, (in my case at least) I need a replacement for my aging ipod and got a Nokia 5230. It's a good music-player as far as sound quality is concerned. Now it is slowly becoming my primary phone . I did not get the ipod touch since I wanted the capability to bluetooth/beam my files with friends.
