Are Smartphones insanely overpriced?
If you purchase a Smartphone without a contract they run $400-$500+ for cutting edge.
This is the price of a laptop or netbook.
I would think they sell a lot more phones than laptops (of course, I think phones have even less longevity than laptops).
I know that research/development costs need to be covered, but it seems to me that smart phones should not cost quite as much as they do.
Is this just an arrangement between maker and carrier to pressure us into contracts, so we can get a discounted price on a Smartphone (in fact, the only way to afford one)?
What say you?
